The Scandinavian Studies Student Award is for an outstanding paper or project on a Scandinavian-related theme, given annually by the Scandinavian Studies program of the Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures at Augustana College. This award was established through a grant from the Marianne and Marcus Wallenberg Foundation.

The award is open to students from any discipline, whose work has engaged with Sweden, the Nordic region or its related cultures (the Nordic region includes Denmark, the Faroe Islands, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, Sápmi, Svalbard, and Sweden). The topic of this research or creative work may have a broad scope, as long as it includes a comparative perspective that anchors it in the Nordic region in a significant way.
