Tuition costs at private colleges can seem prohibitive and often students don’t consider private college for that reason. It is helpful to know that there are financial aid resources available for students to assist them with meeting these costs. Eighty percent of Augsburg students receive financial aid; 95% of American Indian students receive aid. In addition to the standard sources available to all students, Augsburg has a number of scholarships available exclusively for American Indian Students. A list of these Scholarships can be found by clicking here.
