In order to perform for a Fine Arts Scholarship, you must first be admitted to Augsburg University and plan to be a full-time student seeking your first bachelor’s degree. Students currently enrolled at Augsburg University may not apply. Scholarship recipients need not major in music, but must participate in a large-group ensemble and private lessons (there is a fee for private lessons).  For questions on the fine arts music assessment, please contact Tina Brauer ( or 612-330-1265).



The Scholarship performance assessment and interview consists of performing and talking with music faculty. Students are asked to perform music that they feel best represents their musical interests, skills, and potential. The performance assessment is typically 5-7 minutes, with time for questions afterward. For vocal auditions, perform two contrasting pieces. Instruments should prepare a solo piece, ideally with contrasting styles.

You will be contacted to schedule a performance assessment time only after you have been admitted to Augsburg University.
