IUB-Libraries Student Worker Scholarship

IU Libraries is pleased to offer a $500 one-time scholarship, and a paid part-time job at the Libraries, to incoming first year undergraduate students. The scholarship will be provided at the beginning of the spring 2025 semester. Continuing your employment with IU Libraries is not contingent for receipt of the scholarship, although we hope you do. You must have a 3.0 GPA at the end of your first semester for scholarship selection. Your job at the Libraries is renewable each semester based on satisfactory job performance. Students typically work 10-20 hours a week, with the number of hours at your discretion. Preference will be given to students with financial need to help support them during their IU career.
