Scholarships

Scholarships are available to incoming Augsburg students each academic year. These awards are open to all students, not just music majors. Here’s how to qualify for a scholarship:

  • Apply to Augsburg University and select music as an interest in the “Activities and Interests” section of the application—this will activate the Music Performance Award as a potential source of financial support.
  • Complete a Music Performance Award Assessment with Augsburg music faculty, either in person or online. During the assessment you’ll give a short performance on your primary instrument, and have the chance to chat about your musical background, your degree and program interests, and ask questions. Email the music office at musicdept@augsburg.edu to schedule your assessment.

Scholarship awards will be used to fund the cost of music lessons for both fall and spring semester in the 2023-24 academic year. Performance assessments must be completed by August 1, 2023 to qualify.
