Passport Grant
What is the Passport Grant?
  • The Augustana IOP Passport Grant is a need-based scholarship of $1,000 awarded to 30 Augustana students annually to support their participation in an Augustana faculty-led study away program in January, June or summer. 
  • Grant awards are applied directly to the cost of the Augustana program, acting as a discount on the program expense. Funds cannot be used on a program that is not led by an Augustana faculty member
  • Students must have paid a $300 deposit to a faculty-led or summer study away program before March 15, 2024, to be eligible to apply for the Passport Grant.
  • The grant application deadline is March 15, 2024, and grants will be awarded approximately two weeks later.
  • See for more information and for the application form.
