Financial Aid, Costs & Scholarships

Invest in a Bold Future

At Augustana University, we don't want money to get in the way of achieving your dream of a college education. That's why 100% of our students receive scholarships and/or grants to achieve those dreams.

Thanks to generous alumni and friends of Augustana, students benefit from several scholarships each year — removing obstacles and rewarding merit. Some are awarded by the university, while others come from outside our institution.

The majority of scholarships begin by applying for and being admitted to Augustana. They are also renewable, provided students maintain full-time status and good academic standing.
