Service Learning Assistant (SLA)
Service Learning Assistant (SLA) scholars are a critical part of supporting community engagement at IUPUI.
SLA scholars gain valuable knowledge and hands-on experience in the application of their discipline in unscripted, real-world settings. At the same time, these students support the public scholarship and creative activity of IUPUI’s faculty and staff. Of equal importance, SLA scholars learn the skills of collaboration and deliberation that are essential to life in an open and diverse society.
The SLA Scholars support faculty and staff work associated with community-engaged scholarly practice. Unlike the other Sam H. Jones Programs, faculty and staff apply for and are awarded the scholarships and then select a student as the recipient of the scholarship.

If a mentor is looking for a student to serve as their SLA, we will refer to this list for a match if possible.
