Federal Work-Study Students in Community Sites: Free Virtual Info Session for WV Nonprofits and Agencies
Tuesday Sept 22nd: 10AM-11:30AM PRE-REGISTRATION LINK
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 and currently incurs no cost when it comes to their paycheck.
With many eligible students attending classes online and still living in their home communities, WVU Student Financial Services is expanding the program to include new community partners. Attend this free session to learn how that might be you! Eligible community partner sites include non-profit 501(c)3 organizations, and federal, state, or local government agencies serving in the public interest. Student workers can be recruited according to your unique needs. At this time the University covers the partner match requirement, although the community partner organization may be required in the future to match a small percentage of the wages earned. A fact sheet on the program is attached.
The program will cover the topics below and include a Q&A session at the conclusion of the presentation.
- What kinds of organizations are eligible to hire work-study students?
- What is the process for being approved as a community-based site?
- How do we recruit and hire students?
- What are my responsibilities as a supervisor of FWS students?
- How are they paid?
- What kinds of jobs can students do?
You must pre-register to attend. A zoom meeting link will be provided upon registration. For organizations only. Students may direct FWS questions to mountaineerhub.wvu.edu/contact
Days of Service
Students, faculty and staff come together in times of need for communities around the world through our initiative of Dollars for Disaster.
More and younger people are getting involved in voter registration and turnout efforts. With only a few exceptions, college voter registration is up across the country, and much of the education and registration work has been led by students. Here at West Virginia University, Our Social Action clinic has ignited a student’s desire to create more opportunities to enhance voting on our campus, especially those students from the state of West Virginia. In collaboration with a community agency and numerous university departments we have established various voting registration dates for our students across our beautiful campus.
