Bryn Mawr’s Community Based Work Study Program is designed to give undergraduate students the opportunity to earn their financial aid awards (work-study funds) through employment at off-campus community service agencies such as local non-profit organizations and schools. The program provides students with the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to local organizations through their work while also learning about community issues and developing professional skills.
The Community Based Work Study program operates during the academic year only.
