COVID-19 UPDATE: In order to support the College's effort to emphasize social distancing as a means of contributing to the disruption of the COVID-19 virus, the Community-Based Work Study Program will be fully virtual during the 2020 - 2021 academic year. Questions? Ellie Esmond firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
How it Works
The Community-Based Work Study Program allows you to earn work study funds through working at an off-campus non-profit organization for eight to 12 hours a week.
Students earn $10.20 per hour. Most sites are accessible by public transportation and students in the program will receive 100 percent transportation reimbursement.
**Please note--for the 2020 - 2021 academic year, all CBWS internships must be performed remotely. The transportation reimbursement program is temporarily suspended in compliance with the College's Covid-19 restrictions on student travel.**
In order to be part of the program, you must qualify for Federal Work Study funding and be a Senior, Junior, Sophomore, or qualifying First Year.
