- Americorps Scholars in Serviceto Pennsylvania make a commitment to perform 450 hours of community service over one year and receive a $1,250 Education Award. This program can be combined with Off-Campus Work Study. Together the two programs allow students with financial need to earn money for educational costs as they attend classes. Off-Campus Work Study hours (which make a tremendous difference to the communities served) count toward the 450-hour Scholar commitment as do training & some reflection hours.
Student Employee of the Year
The Bloomsburg University Student Employee of the Year receives a $500 scholarship that goes towards their spring semester school bill. Supervisors nominate their special work study students during the fall semester by filling out a three page nomination form. A panel selects the winner. Supervisors, all nominees and readers are invited to our luncheon during Student Employment Appreciation Week in spring semester.

This committee is Jean Downing, SOLVE Director, Chris Gay, Off-Campus Student Employment Coordinator, Karen Hicks, Payroll Coordinator, Ranjana Sawhney, Student Payroll, and Pat Stockalis, On-Campus Student Employment Coordinator.
