Program Description:

Background
Augsburg University has established the Lois A. Swenson Endowed Scholarship to assist one or more seminary students to participate in the Augsburg Center for Global Education and Experience programs.  It was the intent of Lois A. Swenson (the Donor), of Minneapolis, Minnesota, as expressed on her last will and testament, to give, devise, and bequeath to the Augsburg Center for Global Education and Experience funds from her estate to establish and fund a permanent endowment to assist seminary students to participate in the Augsburg Center for Global Education and Experience programs. The Donor stated, "My experience living in Central America opened my eyes to the real world and changed my life. I would like to provide similar experiences to seminary students who will be in a position to further educate people."
