Scholarship Weekend 2017

Every spring, Augsburg University invites the best and brightest prospective Auggies to participate in Scholarship Weekend.

In addition to an opportunity to meet with their future classmates and professors, students interview or audition for the President’s Scholarship and for the Fine Arts Scholarships.

Steve Wozniak

Keynote Speaker – Steve Wozniak

Apple, Inc. co-founder Steve Wozniak joins the Augsburg University community for a conversation on the importance of innovation, creativity, and education in an increasingly connected world. Today a dedicated educator and philanthropist, Wozniak launched Apple with Steve Jobs in 1976, transforming the personal computer industry with pioneering design and introducing a new age of entrepreneurship and experimentation in Silicon Valley.

Finalists, along with their parents, will be offered complimentary admission to attend Steve Wozniak’s talk as part of Scholarship Weekend 2017!

On Friday evening of Scholarship Weekend, students are treated to The Really Big Show—a talk and variety extravaganza that lets students relax after a day of interviews as they witness Augsburg faculty and students showcasing their less serious side.

The show’s host is history professor Phil Adamo, appearing as “the most interesting honors director in the world.” Guests include Augsburg’s one and only President Paul C. Pribbenow, as well as many talented and fascinating current students.

This special event is for Scholarship Weekend participants only. The only way to see it is to apply and attend Scholarship Weekend on February 18-19th!
