Augsburg University recognizes students who have demonstrated outstanding academic, leadership, service, and extracurricular achievements through Augsburg’s scholarship program. Due to the generous amounts of our institutional scholarships, a student’s total scholarship award plus any state and/or federal grants cannot exceed the total cost of tuition at Augsburg. For a list of scholarships available for students transferring to Augsburg, please see our transfer scholarships.

Regents and Honors Scholarship
The Regents and Honors Scholarships recognize new first year students of high academic achievement who begin in the fall semester. These scholarships are awarded based on unweighted high school GPA (please see our test-free admissions policy) and are automatically awarded to all qualified students who are admitted to Augsburg University.

Augsburg Family Scholars
The Augsburg Family Scholars is a program to narrow the opportunity gap for students with foster care backgrounds, beginning in Fall 2023. The program is designed to work in tandem with the state-level support, but is open to any new or returning undergraduate student with a foster care background. Visit the Augsburg Family Scholars website for more information.

Augsburg has partnered with RaiseMe to offer U.S. high school students the opportunity to earn micro-scholarships that recognize their academic achievements and outstanding accomplishments. These micro-scholarships will be incorporated in their Augsburg financial aid award. If you have been awarded a higher amount of institutional grant and/or merit scholarship funding from Augsburg, this grant/scholarship supersedes your earnings on RaiseMe and is not in addition to those earnings.
The deadline for earning micro-scholarship amounts through RaiseMe is November 1st, 2022 and students must complete their Augsburg application by February 1st, 2023 if they wish for their RaiseMe micro-scholarships to apply towards their Augsburg financial aid award.
…and tell your parents we have a Parent Grant!
Students who have a child who is currently attending Augsburg University are eligible to receive a grant. More details can be found on our Student Financial Services page.
Amount: $50.00 off per Adult Undergraduate credit, $80.00 off per Graduate program credit.
