Community Work Study
"Having the capability of handling work and academics can be challenging, but work study has enabled me to work around my own schedule. Work study has given me the opportunity to not only engage myself in my academics but also the chance to grow as an independant individual in the work force."
- Petri M. Lopez '14
Providence College students who demonstrate financial need are eligible to participate in the federal off-campus work-study program. The program is constructed so that students can work at nonprofit organizations throughout the community and receive pay through the federal government. A benefit of off-campus work-study is that it allows for students to gain real world experience related to their interests and field of study while at the same time serving as a resource to community organizations.
The application process for the academic year of 2012-2013 begins on August 1st, 2012. All positions for the academic year of 2012-2013 begin the first week of classes in September.
