Graduate Assistantships

If you are applying for a graduate assistantship, you don't need to fill out the application. Graduate students should send their resume to If there are positions available, the hiring managers will review applications and contact applicants directly.

Prospective Student Employees

Most of the student positions within Purdue Libraries are Federal Work-Study (FWS). This is a federally funded financial aid program designed to help students meet educational costs through the use of part-time employment. FWS students will be considered for employment at Libraries before students not on the FWS program. It is not impossible, but unlikely, that you will be hired if you are not part of the FWS program. A notable exception to the FWS preference is Libraries IT Helpdesk. Student workers for the Helpdesk are hired because of their IT skills not their FWS status.

It is important that you know if you have been awarded FWS as part of your financial aid package. That information can be found on your Financial Aid Award Letter or on the online Financial Aid Self Service system at If you are not a FWS student, you can still apply to Libraries. Just mark the appropriate box on the application form.
