President Steven Bahls says the board and local donors have been talking about it for years.

But now, in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the college decided to initiate the program to help local students attend college closer to home at Augustana. 

Admissions Director, Karen Dahlstrom, says the scholarship will provide $2,000 a year for up to four years to new students from Rock Island, Scott, Henry, and Mercer counties.
