Six AU Students Named 2016-17 Christopherson Scholars
Six Augustana students have been awarded Fred C. and J. Marie Christopherson Scholarships for the 2016-17 academic year.
Faculty and staff can nominate students for the awards. From there, the Augustana Faculty Scholarship and Awards Committee makes selections on the basis of scholarship, campus/community service, and how well the nominees fit the donors' description as someone “equipped for life.”
