AugSTEM Scholars Program

Current funding for the AugSTEM Scholars Program expires April 30, 2016, and we are waiting to hear the decision regarding our renewal proposal. We currently have guaranteed funding for 2 STEM Transfer Provost Scholarships. Interested students should follow the directions below to apply.

The AugSTEM program is designed to support Augsburg juniors and seniors who wish to pursue a career in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
