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 $4000 scholarship ($1000/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.
