Federal Work-Study

Bonner Scholars who are Federal Work-Study eligible can also earn additional bi-weekly income for their hours served through the Community Work-Study Program.


Financial Aid Benefits

Bonner Scholars who receive need-based student loans (Federal Direct Subsidized Student Loan) may have access to supplemental funds from the Bonner Scholars Program that are awarded on an annual basis as a part of the self-help component of their financial aid package. Bonner Scholars do not need to apply for this funding as each will be reviewed by the Office of Financial Aid annually for eligibility.
