Scholarships

Augsburg CGEE programs strive to create an intentionally diverse community of co-learners in which a variety of cultures and backgrounds is represented. Toward this end, we offer scholarships for students who belong to historically disadvantaged groups, and additional scholarships for those that share in our mission of social justice advocacy.

The following are brief descriptions of the eligibility for students attending Augsburg CGEE’s own programs. You can click on each to read more about the scholarship and to apply.
