Bryn Mawr’s Community Based Work Study Program is designed to give undergraduate students the opportunity to earn their financial aid awards (work-study allotments) through employment at off-campus community service agencies such as local non-profit organizations and community 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 Civic Engagement Office envisions this program as a way to build stronger relationships with community agencies by providing them with skilled, enthusiastic, and creative student workers who will help support the work of their organizations. Ideally, providing host agencies with student employees will build the capacity of the organizations in such as way as to allow them to better achieve their own missions and realize their goals.
The Community-Based Work Study Program allows you to earn work study funds through working 8-12 hours a week at an off-campus non-profit organization. In order to be part of the program, you must qualify for work study funding.
