Outside Scholarship Information

In an effort to assist students in funding their education at Augustana, the Financial Assistance Office has provided the following outside scholarship information.  The content of this page is limited to items such as deadlines and links for the scholarship sites.  We encourage students to be proactive in their search for outside scholarships and strongly recommend that students take the necessary time to research and determine their own eligibility as well as the requirements to receive and/or maintain any outside awards.  It is advisable that students use caution when sharing personal information for a scholarship, especially the social security number and date of birth.  Augustana recommends that students do not consider scholarship options/searches that have a fee or cost associated with them.  Finally, we believe students should always consider the following entities as well when pursuing scholarship opportunities:


     Guidance Office    
     Churches
     Parents' Employers
     Local Community Businesses
     Banks and/or Credit Unions
     Government Agencies
