On Friday evening, students are treated to The Big Show—a spectacle unlike any other experience they will have as Auggies. It’s a chance for them to relax and for the College to showcase its less serious side.

The evening features performances by Bob Groven, Augsburg’s President Paul Pribbenow himself, and current Honors Students.

This special event is for the eyes of Scholarship Weekend guests only—few current students, faculty, or staff are treated to the performance. The only way to see it is to apply and come to scholarship weekend yourself!

Selection Process

The deadline for the President’s Scholarship application is January 12th, 2015 – all sections of your application must be received by this date. Applicants will be notified if they are selected to compete as finalists at Scholarship Weekend by January 26th, 2015 via email.
