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 contact Beth Ford for more information.
