Off-Campus Employer Eligibility
Local nonprofit, government, and community-based organizations that serve the region are considered community service employers and are eligible to participate in the Federal Work-Study (FWS) program. The Federal Work-Study program will subsidize 75% of a student’s wage while the organization covers the remaining 25%.
Community Service positions aim to provide:
- Real-life work experiences outside of the classroom
- Exposure to careers in public service for students
- Expanded service capacity of the organization
