Having the capability of handling work and academics can be challenging, but work study has enabled me to work around my own schedule. Work study has given me the opportunity to not only engage myself in my academics but also the chance to grow as an independent individual in the work force.

Providence College students who demonstrate financial need are eligible to participate in the federal Community Work-Study program. Community Work-Study is an opportunity for students with a federal work-study award to work at partnered community sites and be paid through their federal work-study funding. A benefit of Community Work-Study is that it allows for students to gain real world experience related to their interests and field of study while at the same time serving as a resource to community organizations.
Applications are available online under the student employment website. Directions for applying are listed below.
