- Hire Federal Work-Study Students to work in your community site: Federal Work-Study is a federally funded program that allows eligible students to earn funds working part-time with approved employers on and off campus. The program is mutually beneficial — the student earns money to pay for college while their employer gains a helpful hand. Pay rates start at $11.00 per hour for work-studies hired in a community partner position. Eligible community sites include non-profit 501(c)3 organizations, and federal, state, or local government agencies serving in the public interest. To learn more about the program and how you can participate, please visit the WVU Federal Work-Study webpage. If you have any questions, contact the Mountaineer Hub.
