Augsburg has partnered with RaiseMe to offer U.S. college 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.
Fall 2022 Transfer applicants must sign up for RaiseMe and complete their Augsburg application by July 1st, 2022 if they wish for their RaiseMe micro-scholarships to apply towards their Augsburg financial aid award.
