The Office of Scholarships and Financial Aid has Work-Study funding available for the 2019-2020 academic year. Our goal is to fully utilize the funds we have to offer our eligible students Work-Study options. We would like to evaluate current part-time student workers to determine if they are eligible for Work-Study and also assist in any way possible for students to participate in the Work-Study program during the 2019-2020 year.
As an employer, this may reduce the cost of wages to your Department for your student employees. If you send us a list of all the part-time student workers you employ, we will happily look at their eligibility on a case-by-case basis to see if Work-Study is a possibility and provide further guidance to assist if needed.
As you are hiring new student employees, we would like to evaluate those students as well for eligibility for the Work-Study program. You may send us their name and student ID for review.
If it is determined that the student worker is eligible to participate we will let the department know. If your student worker(s) are interested in Work-Study please let them know they can on our website.
Once a student has Work-Study the employer will then need to complete a Job Referral Notice (JRN) Request on our website.
For employers with additional questions about Work-Study we have information available on our website.
