Community Work-Study

Overview of the Community Work-Study Program

The Community Work-Study (CWS) Program engages community partners and students in meaningful work experiences that not only help partners reach their organizational goals but also help students learn and develop through community-based, real-world experiences. Approved nonprofit and government agencies can hire students and only pay 25% of their wages.

If you are interested in becoming an approved CWS agency, or if you have questions about the program, please email
