The Community Service Federal Work-Study Program (CSFWSP) seeks to match non-profit organizations with Bucknell's eligible students looking for jobs. Student employees are paid from Federal grant money and are able to work at specified tasks within your organization, as long as the position benefits local residents or the public good.
On Bucknell's campus, this program is co-administered by the Office of Financial Aid and the Office of Civic Engagement, which encourage local non-profit agencies and institutions to design and submit descriptions of jobs that Bucknell students could do for them under the agency's management and supervision. Typically, these positions call for no more than ten hours of work per student per week, but this amount is negotiable between the individual student and the agency.
Off-campus Federal Work-Study (FWS) jobs with local agencies or non-profit organizations, must be in the public interest. To the maximum extent practicable, the Office of Civic Engagement tries to provide FWS jobs that complement and reinforce each recipient's educational program or career goals.
Our office invites community partners to attend our upcoming brunch on Wednesday, July 27, from 9 - 11 a.m. in Walls Lounge, 2nd floor, Elaine Langone Center, to learn about various ways to collaborate with the University.
The program will feature specifics around applying for a Community Service Federal Work-Study student, promoting your organization at our upcoming Fall Service Fair, and partnering with faculty and staff in academic ways. Light breakfast refreshments will be served.
