College Access Program Scholarship

Graduating Student With Faculty MembersThe College Access Program Scholarship and the Augsburg Promise Grant can help your dream of earning a college degree become a reality.

These programs recognize students who participate in a college-readiness program such as pre-college TRiO programs, MEP, College Possible, Urban Debate League, and AVID by providing additional financial support. Students receive a minimum scholarship award of $16,500 per year for up to four years.

Transfer students are also eligible for the College Access Program Scholarship if they participate in TRiO/ Student Support Services programs while enrolled in a post-secondary institution. Students must be accepted to Augsburg University and provide documentation of participation in a college readiness program in order to receive this benefit.

Another component of the College Access Program Scholarship is the Augsburg Promise Grant.  Incoming first year students will receive the total cost of tuition (does not include fees, room, or board) through grants if they meet the following criteria:

  • ACT of 20 or higher (test-optional students should submit their ACT score after acceptance)
  • Cumulative GPA of 3.25
  • Pell Grant eligible
  • Participation in a college-readiness program
  • Resident of Minnesota and a graduate of a Minnesota high school
  • Must reside in the residence halls while attending Augsburg

Augsburg Promise Scholars must submit the $150 enrollment deposit or the deposit waiver form by May 1st, 2020.
