Work Study Employment

Federal Work-Study is awarded to undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need. The award ranges from $250 to $2,000 per year to help meet their costs of post-secondary education. Work Study is a federally-subsidized program in which wage costs are shared by the federal government and the university.

Work Study positions are hourly-wage jobs in which a student works for an employer according to a mutually agreed-upon schedule and is paid on a bi-weekly basis for the hours worked.

The Office of Financial Aid manages the work study program. There are many different jobs available through the Work Study Program ranging from information technology to athletics, from admission to campus operations. There are many different Work Study categories from which to choose, varying in the areas of interest, degree of difficulty, and wage rate. With a variety of positions available, it is hoped that students will find jobs which are both interesting and related to their career goals.

How to find a job

Students participating in the work study program find positions available on campus with which they have interest in. Students are not assigned a position. This allows student to pursue areas of interest to them. All on-campus work study positions are posted on www.trinecareers.org before classes begin in the fall.
