For Students

We appreciate your interest in the Community Work Study Program! Working public interest positions in local communities has proven to be a valuable experience to the students within our program. In addition to earning work study funds, the benefits to students could include opportunities to explore the innerworking of the nonprofit sector, getting to know and serve the community in which we live, a chance to provide support for those in need, gaining real world work experience and skills to carry into future careers, and an excuse to explore our local area outside of campus life. Whether you are a new student learning about our program, or a returning student looking for information, please see the resources listed to the left.
