Since 2008, seventy-two Augsburg students have received Gilman scholarships, totaling $284,000. In addition, over the last 10 semesters, Augsburg’s Gilman win rate has averaged over 60% – of 38 completed applications in that time, we have had 23 winners!
It takes a village to support students in their application process. Many thanks to Casey Jarvala, Catherine Maun and the whole financial aid team, staff in TRIO, MSS, Academic Advising, and URGO and, of course, faculty mentors/advisors.
Congrats Yordi, Ingri, Ruti, Lexi — and all our winners this round!
