PACT (Parish and College Together) Program
The Parish And College Together (PACT) program is a matching grant program for students from their congregations. Its purpose is to provide financial assistance for students who wish to attend Augustana University. For the 2016-17 academic year, 69 congregations assisted a total of 134 students with funds of $76,708.
New for the 2017-18 Academic Year
Starting with the 2017-18 academic year, Augustana University has opened the PACT program requirements and removed all deadline dates for PACT matches. Churches are welcome to submit a PACT agreement form to notify us which students will receive a scholarship. All scholarships provided by any church will be matched, up to $500, with no deadline for the PACT form submission or notification.
How PACT Works
Any full-time student that receives a scholarship of any amount from their church is eligible to receive a matching grant up to $500 from Augustana Univerisity.
To Receive the Matching Grant
Any representative from the church may fill out the PACT Agreement Form, listing the names of qualified students who will attend Augustana the next school year. Or the student may fill out an Outside Scholarship Report listing the name of the church and the amount of the scholarship. There is no notification deadline to receive the matching grant, although we request that notifications are completed before July 1.
