Federal Work-Study Program Information Resources
The U.S. government uses Federal Work-Study programs to subsidize wages for working students. By law, 7% of those funds must be used to support community-based work. The resources here are designed to help colleges and universities meet or exceed this mandate.
Much of my work in service-learning and community engagement has come as a result of the many excellent resources and materials generated by Campus Compact. When I first became the Founding Director of CSUSB's CUP [Community-University Partnership Institute], I relied almost exclusively on the resources of Campus Compact in designing, planning, and implementing our actions.
