Augie Choice

Augie Choice guarantees students the opportunity for the kinds of learning that will make them stand out when they start careers or go on to graduate school.

All students may receive up to $2,000 to support a qualifying hands-on learning experience of their choice: internship, research or study abroad.

An average of 550 students a year use Augie Choice for international study, research with a professor, or to support a valuable but unpaid internship experience. Augustana has invested more than $10 million in these high-impact learning experiences in the past decade.

Students with a qualifying experience in mind may apply in their junior year. Transfer students may apply after one year at Augustana.
