Auditioned Based Fine Arts Scholarship

Augsburg RaiseMe

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, 2020 and students must complete their Augsburg application by February 1st, 2021 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.
