Fellows have the opportunity to work closely with a mentor team of library faculty and staff during the Spring semester. Up to two fellows will be awarded $1,500 for 120 hours of participation in the program.   

Fellowship Eligibility Requirements:  

  • NKU undergraduate actively enrolled in classes 

  • Able to commit 120 hours over the course of the Spring 2024 semester 

  • Ability to contribute to the diversity of the field of academic librarianship, including but not limited to diversity of socioeconomic background, prior academic experiences, race, ethnicity, and first-generation status.

Information Literacy Fellowship

The goal of this Fellowship is to amplify a student experience to help guide and shape information literacy instruction at Steely Library. Under the direction of the Education & Outreach Services Department, a student fellow would engage the campus with information literacy in and out of the classroom. In particular, the Fellow would help create instructional videos to support student learning. They will learn the process of creating an instructional video, will update video scripts, and will be involved with video production. Additional projects will be shaped based on the student fellow’s major, personal interests, and career aspirations.  

Fellowship Benefits:

  • Learn more about information literacy

  • Gain the ability to articulate the importance of information literacy to peers

  • Create instructional content that will be used by NKU students  

  • Opportunity to customize the Fellowship projects based on personal interests

  • This Fellowship is a great fit for students interested in education, instruction design, library science, and creating positive student experiences
