Augustana University offers a $1,000 music scholarship to LSM alumni who meet the requirements of admission to the college; the scholarship will be available to first-year students enrolling in the Fall of 2015 and beyond. The scholarship will be renewable annually, for four years, as long as the student is continuously enrolled in pursuit of their first Bachelors’ degree, is making satisfactory academic progress, and participates in a music ensemble or serves campus ministry as a chapel musician. LSM alumni are also invited to audition for one of Augustana’s Pro Musica Scholarships, which range in amounts from $1,000 to $5,000 annually. These awards are based on talent and instrumentation need. Music awards are open to all majors. The LSM alumni scholarship may be awarded in addition to another talent scholarship and academic award.
