News of a brand new opportunity was just made – the Obama Voyager Scholarship. A collaboration between Barack and Michelle Obama and Airbnb’s Brian Chesky. Designed for rising juniors who intend a career in public service.
– Students will receive up to $25,000 per year in “last dollar” financial aid for their junior and senior years of college. This financial aid should alleviate the burden of college debt so that students can afford to pursue a career in public service.
– Students will receive a $10,000 stipend and free Airbnb housing to pursue a summer work-travel experience between their junior and senior year of college.
– After graduation, Airbnb will provide the students with a $2,000 travel credit every year for 10 years, totaling $20,000. This will allow students to continue to broaden their horizons and forge new connections throughout their public service careers.
– Students will be invited each fall to an annual summit to help define and inspire their public service journey. At the summit this fall, they will meet with President Obama and Brian Chesky to talk about the role of empathy and understanding in leadership. They’ll also hear from guest speakers on different approaches to service, and build community with other Voyagers.

On Saturday, June 4th, three of our Augsburg University students who identify as First-generation college students will be running the FANS Ultra-Marathon. FANS (Furthering Achievement Through a Network of Support) is a college and career mentorship program for high school students, specifically working with students of color, recent immigrants, and other groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education.
Angelica Bello Ayapantecatl, Kay Joanne Carvajal Moran and Ivonne Hernandez will be participating in the 6-Hour Marathon at Normandale Lake and would appreciate the support of our Augsburg directors, professors, staff, students and community members. They are only $940 dollars short from their goal! If you have the opportunity to donate to their fundraiser anything would help!
Thank you for your generous contributions and for believing in students!
If you have any further questions about the program you may contact Ivonne Hernandez at Ivonneh@Pillsburyunited.org

The Augsburg Human Resources and Payroll team is launching a new electronic Payroll Payment Request (stipend) form and approval flow. No more paper forms!
The approval flow requires each request to be approved by the cost center’s budget manager, the Division Vice President and Vice President of Strategy. The new process reduces employee ID errors to help ensure Payroll Payment requests are processed correctly
The Payroll Payment Request form is available at sites.augsburg.edu/hr/payroll for immediate use! Old PDF/Paper forms will continue to be accepted until May 31st. Beginning June 1st only the new electronic Payroll Payment Request form will be accepted.
A couple of reminders:
-This form is to be used to request staff & student employee compensation for services rendered outside of their regularly scheduled work duties. This form should not be used in lieu of non-exempt employees recording hours worked on their biweekly timesheet. All payment requests will be reviewed for legal compliance under the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA).
-Reimbursements for mileage, supplies, etc. should be requested from Administrative Accounting.
