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.
My own service-learning experience helped me to change my undergraduate major to social work. As a student worker with the program, I gained so many skills that helped me to be successful as a social worker and change agent after graduation. Now I help student workers develop these same skills and find the same passion for creating positive change that I have felt.
