#2 – MUSIC PERFORMANCE AWARDS

The Music Performance Awards are available to incoming Auggies for 2022-2023. These awards are a one-year award that funds the recipient the cost of lesson fees, up to $1,600, for qualified Augsburg students who plan to continue actively participating in music lessons & ensembles while at Augsburg. Students need not major or minor in music to receive this award! Here are a few important items to help you begin:

  • First Apply to Augsburg to begin the process of receiving a Music Performance Award from the music department.
  • On your application, be sure to enter Music as an interest in the Activities and Interests section – This will activate the Music Performance Award as an option you may qualify for!
  • Finally, to formally receive & accept the Music Performance Award, a brief performance assessment with Augsburg faculty will be scheduled, either in person or online. During this time, faculty will hear you perform on your primary instrument, learn a bit more about your musical background, chat about your degree & program interests at Augsburg, and answer any questions.

This award will be used to fund the cost of music lessons for both fall and spring of 2022-23. Students are required to complete the performance assessment prior to August 1, 2022 to qualify.
