Scholarships are powerful. They remove obstacles, reward merit and meet needs — sometimes all at once. Thanks to a variety of alumni, friends and businesses, Augustana University students benefit from several scholarships each year. Some are awarded by AU, while others come from outside our institution. The majority of scholarships begin by applying for and being admitted to Augustana. Many awards are also renewable provided students maintain full-time status and good academic standing.
Augustana strives to be a place for diverse and talented leaders to grow. To do that, we offer an array of scholarships designed to attract students who will build their communities and make them even better places to live. The Fryxell Scholarship is awarded to students who wish to study the humanities. Incoming first-year students are invited to apply. This is a $1,000 scholarship, awarded annually for up to four years, provided students maintain at least a 3.0 GPA and a have a declared major in the Humanities.
