The Naeseth Writing Scholarship

The Augustana Naeseth Writing Scholarship is awarded to students who show exceptional promise as writers and intend to major in English. Each year, Augustana awards several Naeseth Writing Scholarships in amounts of $1,000 - renewable annually - to students who participate in the Academic Departmental Open House and Scholarship Competition hosted on campus in January. The event provides students the opportunity to learn more about the English department and then, write an essay to compete for the scholarship award.

Augustana's English majors have many opportunities to enrich their study. Extra-curricular activities such as After Hours Poetry and Fiction, Saga (the student-edited literary and art magazine), and the Observer (the student newspaper) provide students with hands on experience. And you'll meet and work with other students and faculty who care about the things that matter to you.

To schedule a campus visit or arrange a meeting with our English faculty, go to or call admissions at (800) 798-8100.
