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 8-12 hours a week
Students earn $10.25 per hour. Most sites are accessible by public transportation and students in the program will receive transportation reimbursement.
In order to be part of the program, you must qualify for Federal Work Study funding and be a Sophomore, Junior or Senior.
How to Apply
If you are interested in participating in Community Based Work Study, you must submit an application (doc) to Civic Engagement.
