Passport Grant
What is the Passport Grant?
  • The Augustana IOP Passport Grant is a need-based scholarship of $1,000 which is awarded to 30 Augustana students annually to support their participation in an Augustana-sponsored study away program.  Programs include Summer Away and J-Term programs. 
  • Grant awards are applied directly to the cost of the Augustana program, acting as a discount on the program expense.  They may not be used on non-Augustana programs. 
  • The grant application deadline is March 13, 2020 and grants will be awarded a week later.Passport Grant Notes
  • Students may combine this grant with Augie Choice if they are eligible for Augie Choice for the program selected.  Preference will be given to first time study abroad participants.
  • While this is primarily a need-based grant, consideration of the quality of the application and application essays will factor into the grant award process.
  • Grants are awarded to pay for program costs of the students’ first choice.  Students who are awarded a grant and then opt for a different program than the one indicated may be reevaluated for grant eligibility. 
  • All grants must be used towards the expenses of a study away program during the summer or academic year which follows the award.  Students who defer their participation beyond that year forfeit the grant and must reapply in the next grant cycle to be reconsidered.  
  • Students who are awarded a grant and opt not to enroll in the program will not receive the grant funds. 
  • Students may not request the grant funds as cash.  They are applied as a discount towards the Augustana fee for the study away experience.
  • The IOP Passport Grant must be used toward an Augustana endorsed program.
