Fine Arts Scholarships FAQ


1. Can I apply for more than one Fine Arts Scholarship?

Yes, you are certainly welcome to apply for more than one Fine Arts Scholarship; however, you will only be awarded one Fine Arts Scholarship. We recommend applying for your top two choices and no more than three.


2. Can I receive a music scholarship for any instrument?

We only offer music scholarships for the instruments for which we provide instruction. These instruments include: Piano, organ, violin, viola, cello, bass, double bass, harp, classical guitar, electric bass, trumpet, trombone, French horn, euphonium, tuba, flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, saxophone, percussion, and voice.


3. How many scholarships are awarded?

While the Fine Arts Scholarship is a competitive scholarship, faculty members have the ability to award as many scholarships as they wish. Therefore, we do offer a substantial number of scholarships within each of the fine arts departments (music, theater, film, visual arts, and speech).


4. When will I hear back if I received a scholarship?

You should receive notification by email within two weeks after auditioning.


5. I’ve been admitted to Augsburg for the spring semester, can I still apply for a Fine Arts Scholarship?

Yes!  We welcome spring semester students to apply as well; however, you must apply and audition/interview at least two weeks before the start of the spring semester term. Contact your admissions counselor for more information if you are admitted for spring semester and wish to apply.


6. How do I schedule my audition time?

Once you have been both admitted to the institution and we have received and processed your completed Fine Arts Scholarship Submission Form with supplemental materials, we will contact you to set up an audition time. The sooner you turn in your materials, the sooner you will be asked to select an audition time (so turn in your applications early for the best selection).


7. What will the audition be like?

The auditions are closed auditions. Typically 2-4 faculty members will hear the audition and ask you some follow up questions. Parents are not able to sit in on the auditions.


8. What are the requirements for renewing the scholarship if I’m offered one?

The requirements for renewing the scholarship vary based on the department, but are limited to participation in the arts and hosting during Scholarship Weekend. If you are offered a scholarship, you will be asked to sign an Acceptance Agreement which specifically outlines the scholarship requirements. Our Fine Arts Scholars do find the time to participate in a wide variety of activities, not solely the arts.
