Fulbright Occasional Lecturer Program:

The Council for the International Exchange of Scholars' (CIES) Fulbright Occasional Lecturer Program provides travel awards for Fulbright Visiting Scholars currently in the United States to accept guest lecturing invitations at colleges and universities. Appropriate activities include, but are not limited to: department- or campus-wide lectures to students or faculty (or both); classroom lectures in which the scholar can make a contribution to the discipline; and meetings with community organizations or religious groups that have a special interest in international relations. The awards, paid directly to the scholars, are granted at three different levels ($250, $500, and $750), depending on the travel distance involved. For more information about the program, including how to contact a Fulbright Visiting Scholar, see To view a list of available visiting scholars, please visit .


Servant Leader Internships:

The Servant Leader Internship Program gives Augustana first-year, sophomore, and junior students, hands-on experience in church-related, non-profit and community settings.  Students use these paid internships to broaden their understanding of their vocations, to test their interest in professional ministry, or to lay the foundation for lifelong habits of volunteerism.

Please encourage students interested in exploring their vocation to apply today.  Application information can be found at our web-site,
