Financial Aid and Scholarships
The SJSU School of Information offers generous scholarships to both new students and continuing students enrolled in its Master of Library and Information Science, Master of Archives and Records Administration, or MS in Informatics program. Additional scholarships are also available from San José State University and other agencies.
Graduate students admitted for the MLIS or MARA degree programs at the San José State University (SJSU) School of Information are eligible each semester for a variety of paid student assistantships that involve working with faculty and staff on different projects. Some examples of projects and tasks that student assistants have worked on include:
Our school’s MLIS and MARA graduate students and Post-Master’s Certificate students are strongly encouraged to complete an internship (we offer on-site and virtual internship opportunities) and gain valuable real-world experience and course credit.
Our school’s online learning environment includes a wide array of emerging technology, enabling SJSU iSchool students and faculty to interact and collaborate, regardless of their geographic location. We invite you to browse this section of our website, which provides information regarding the technology we currently use in our programs.
Student Wellness Online Resources
SJSU Counseling and Psychological Services, a Division of Student Affairs, offers free online workshops and support groups that are available to all iSchool students. These resources are designed to provide students with a safe space for dialogue and reflection, as well as an opportunity to learn life skills and positive ways to improve academic and personal success.
Complimentary Student Memberships In Professional Associations
We believe membership in professional associations will enhance your understanding of the profession and the issues it faces, which is part of the content of INFO 200, MARA 200 and INFM 200. It also encourages connections between the associations and our students.
Graduate students at the San José State University School of Information are highly encouraged to participate in the student chapters of professional associations and special interest groups. It’s a great way to meet peers, gain experience for resume building, and network.
