Ready to change the world? Apply for the Frederick Douglass Global Fellowship, a full scholarship to study in Ireland in late summer 2021 with a cohort of student leaders from around the country!
The Frederick Douglass Global Fellowship was founded to empower students of color with a transformative experience abroad, much like Frederick Douglass was inspired by his travels. This year’s cohort is co-sponsored by the Irish Department of Foreign Affairs to commemorate the 175th anniversary of Douglass’s four-month journey around Ireland.
You’ll be based in Dublin and visit other cities where Douglass campaigned, while meeting with government leaders and social justice activists. Special emphasis on leadership, social justice, agitation for positive change and cross-cultural understanding – so critical in 2020 of all years!
This opportunity is offered by CIEE, a study abroad organization that Augsburg partners with. All program fees are covered and airfare is COVERED – you only pay for your passport (if you need one) and a few meals.
All eligible students who submit an application also qualify for a $1,500 scholarship towards any CIEE summer program! You don’t have to win the fellowship to qualify for this funding!!

Hi! My name is Bella and I am first year student here at Augsburg studying graphic design. I am currently trying to find personal care assistants to help me in my day to day life here on campus. This would include getting me ready for the day, helping me get set up for class and assisting me around campus. I am very flexible on hours and more help would be much appreciated. If you are a pre-med or nursing student, this is a great opportunity to get experience with patient care. Plus, you get to be paid to have fun!
I really enjoy getting coffee, watching Netflix, drawing, and painting. I consider all my assistants as my friends and if you work for me, you are guaranteed a good time! If you are interested, please text me at: 612-345-2855 or email me at email@example.com. Hope you will join!

The Minneapolis Moment is a one-minute play project attempting to continue dialogue rooted in the murder of George Floyd in Minneapolis and the resulting uprisings in a time of pandemic and divisive federal elections. We’ll borrow the model of the Every 28 Hours Plays to create, select, and perform one-minute plays over Zoom or other video media to share with the Augsburg and Minneapolis communities.
The Minneapolis Moment will engage student, staff, and faculty in order to perform selected one-minute plays from the Every 28 Hours Plays and to write and perform new one-minute plays based on experiences since the murder of George Floyd. The goal is to facilitate critical dialogue and reflection by providing multiple viewpoints and multiple experiences.
The design of the project allows participants to start working in December 2020 and continue into the spring semester of 2021 with three or four performances building on each other and able to be broadcast virtually to be in alignment with essential health measures to protect against the pandemic. The idea is to have three or four performances with several one-minute plays and then ultimately to collect and edit them into one larger video. Participants can be involved in only one writing and performance cycle or in them all—it will be up to them. All Augsburg students, staff, and faculty will be welcome to participate.
