The Augsburg Partnership Grant applies to newly enrolling students only and allows employees of partner institutions to receive a tuition discount in the form of a grant. Students qualify for the partnership tuition discount according to their employment status at the time of their entry into a graduate or adult undergraduate program only. Application fees of $35 are waived and if a student enrolls in an Employer Tuition Reimbursement Payment Plan, the $30 processing fee is also waived. Partnership students will receive deferred payment, meaning they are not required to make out-of-pocket payments on their tuition until 60 days after the end of the term.

The Augsburg Partnership Grant also applies to Chamber Leadership Scholars who have completed a leadership program at one of our partner Chambers of Commerce. Chamber Leadership Scholars should provide their Chamber of Commerce Leadership Program Certificate to verify eligibility.
The partnership program includes a sharing of educational resources between institutions. We are hopeful that we can be of assistance to our partners with any unique needs that arise. Augsburg College has a talented faculty who are requested for speaking engagements, workshops, research, project collaboration and advice on a variety of issues. Likewise, the College is always interested in guest speakers for campus events and in developing ties to the community.
If you qualify for the Augsburg Partnership Grant, please notify your admissions counselor.
