Academic Departmental Open House & Scholarship Competition

Visit Augustana on Jan. 17, 2015 for our academic departmental open house and scholarship competition.

The academic departmental open house and scholarship competition is a great way to:

  • explore an academic field through a department's open house
  • enjoy getting to know some of the faculty mentors you may have as a student at Augustana
  • express yourself and your abilities as you compete for a $4,000 scholarship ($1,000/year)
  • experience our beautiful campus in winter

Over 30 academic departments representing nearly 90 majors and related areas of study will be participating in the event. Each scholarship competition will vary; last year departments had students collaborating in writing workshops, participating in group discussions, and performing experiments in our laboratories, just to name a few. 

Fine Arts Scholarships: There is also the opportunity to audition for fine arts scholarships on this date. Music and theatre auditions and art portfolio reviews will be scheduled between 10:15 a.m. - 4 p.m. Please fill out the online application form for these fine arts scholarships to reserve your time. 

Out of State Visitors: If you live in a state other than Illinois you are invited to spend the night and take part in campus activities on Friday, Jan. 16 and Saturday, Jan. 17 as part of our Out of State Weekend. Please see the registration form for options during your visit.
