In recognition of the unique learning skills and scientific curiosity borne out of the Seeds of Change experience, Augustana University will award a $1,000 scholarship (awarded during a student's first year at AU) to any Seeds of Change participant that matriculates at AU.


In addition, Seeds of Change participants who apply to Augustana are invited to attend a Study Away Scholarship event where they will have the opportunity to interview for a $2,000 Around the World study away grant for use on a future AU study away experience at one of more than 500 locations around the globe.
