Federal Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study Program is a need-based program in which the federal government pays from 50 to 100 percent of student wages and the employer pays the remainder. Work-Study is available to undergraduate and graduate students. Employment opportunities are on-campus and off-campus. On-campus jobs are with nearly every academic and administrative department. Off-campus jobs are with government agencies and non-profit groups; many are community service jobs that involve directly serving the community, while providing good work experience. The America Reads program, which tutors young children in public schools, is one of these programs. The Career Center lists openings for on-campus and off-campus jobs at www.pdx.edu/careers/. For Federal Work Study information, please see the Student Employment Coordinator, in the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships or the website at www.pdx.edu/finaid/work-study.
