*STUDENTS: The application process is through Bishop Link. Please read application instructions carefully.  Sending a cover letter or resume directly to a faculty supervisor is not the correct way to apply. 

The Student Assistantship Program (StAP) provides hands-on experiences in a professional setting for Ohio Wesleyan University students who desire to complement their liberal arts education with practical experiences. The StAP program enables students to translate what they have learned in the classroom into practical solutions in a real world work environment here on campus. It is the intention of the StAP program to place students in positions that assist them with:

  • Preparation for careers or graduate/professional school
  • Communication skills – Working with faculty/staff in a paraprofessional role
  • Translating academic concepts into practical solutions
  • Providing service to the university
  • Earning a meaningful letter of recommendation
  • Gaining marketable professional skills

Due to budget constraints, there will be a limited number of positions offered for the 2017 - 2018 academic year. 

Note: Please review the guidelines and instructions thoroughly before proceeding to the StAP log-in sites. Thank you!
