DRIVE/On-Campus Employment

The “DePauw Resources for Internships, Vocation, and Employment” Program (referred to as DRIVE) provides students with the opportunity to work on campus during the academic year. Federal Work Study (FWS) & DePauw Work Study (DWS) positions are listed on our Handshake. The majority of on-campus student positions are posted at the beginning of each semester, however, they may be posted at any time throughout the academic year. There are on-campus student positions available in nearly every department and building on campus and for students of all different skill levels and academic/career interests.  It is recommended that you prepare your resume and begin applying early and that you apply to as many positions as you feel you are qualified for. DRIVE is supported by the Office of Student Employment located in The Hubbard Center.  We are available to help you with on-campus employment and we serve as a resource for supporting your future career and internship aspirations! Our mission is to empower you to be a responsible leader and to promote professional growth.

Student employment work experience is intended to complement the educational experience and to enhance future employment. The Financial Aid Office awards all student employment on campus. The Hubbard Center administers the DRIVE/student employment program.
