In a state known for the unknowns when it comes to funding for public education, Augustana is more affordable than families might think. Once they receive their financial aid packages, students and families can be surprised at the cost difference between a private, independent college and a large, regional public university. It’s a difference that can be missed during a family’s initial review of college costs. And it can make all the difference to a student's college choice. Augustana College offers many scholarships based on varying criteria.
The Lucken Geology Scholarship provides recognition and financial assistance, up to $8,000 ($2,000 per year), to full-time students who will enroll at Augustana College and major in geology. The scholarship is awarded based on academic merit and financial need, and it is made based on the recommendation of the department. Scholarships may be renewed provided that the conditions of eligibility are met and funds are available.
