Scholarships for Augsburg CGEE programs

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.
CGEE’s Inclusion & Access Scholarship
For individual students participating on an international CGEE semester or summer program (to Mexico, Central America, or Southern Africa).

CGEE’s Inclusion and Access Scholarships will be awarded to students with financial need who identify from a group of persons that is traditionally underrepresented in study abroad, including:

  • Persons of Color
  • First Generation Students
  • LGBTQIA+ individuals
  • Persons with a disability
  • Persons with financial need
  • Veterans 
Funding will also be available to our “Supporter of Social Change” winner - someone with a demonstrated commitment to social change in their community. This person will be an advocate for social change in their community, and may not necessarily be from an underrepresented group listed above. 

If you identify in any of the above categories, are a supporter of social change, or a combination of those, you can apply for the scholarship online. There is one application; multiple scholarships will be awarded each semester and summer session! All students are welcomed and encouraged to apply!

For questions about this scholarship, please contact Margaret Anderson at 

Application and more information for the Inclusion and Access Scholarships. 


Mary Witt Group Scholarship
For groups traveling on a customized short-term CGEE program. 

Scholarships for your group are available, and must be completed by the trip leader OR an administrator at the organization for the full group. To simplify our scholarship process, we have created one application for all CGEE customized groups! Please submit an application to the group scholarship if you match any one of the following criteria:
  • Anticipate a large group of underrepresented students on your program (students of color, lgbtq+, first generation students, etc.)
  • Programming is focused on social justice in some form
  • Anticipate a large number of high financial need students
