Federal Work Study

Federal Work Study is a part of a student’s financial aid package and is awarded by the semester. The Community Service Federal Work Study program allows students to use their award to support a community organization. Students typically work 7 hours a week. The host organization provides on-site supervision, and the CSC provides financial support to the organization for their 25% cost-share, which is not covered by the federal government. Most positions open in early fall semester, and CSC distributes descriptions at the annual Student Employment Fair on campus and via the online Student Employment Services search portal.

If you are an organization or a student who is interested in participating in the community service federal work study program, please contact volunteer@jhu.edu or (410) 410-516-4777.
