Community-Based Work Study Opportunities
Community-based work study provides eligible students with the opportunity to earn their financial aid awards (federal work-study allotments) through employment at off-campus community agencies such as local non-profit organizations and community schools. Common community-based work study opportunities include tutoring literacy and math to young students.
Through community-based work study, college students:
- learn about existing needs in the community,
- address those needs through service,
- gain valuable work experience, and
- develop meaningful relationships with their community.
