What is the Augsbury/North Country Scholarship?
The Augsbury/North Country Scholarship (ANCS) was established in 1974 and serves to recognize academic and extracurricular leadership among designated North Country and Canadian high school students. The $128,000 scholarship ($32,000 per year) is awarded to up to two nominated students from each eligible high school. Students who are nominated and admitted to St. Lawrence, but not selected as scholars, will receive an $100,000 scholarship ($25,000 per year) to recognize their nomination.

Who is named an Augsbury/North Country Scholar?
More than 100 high schools in the North Country and Canada are designated as eligible schools for the ANCS competition. Counselors at participating schools may nominate up to two students annually; each student must have a grade point average of 90 or higher (80 or higher on the Canadian grading scale) at the end of grade 11.
