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. 

Work-Study Students


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.

Work Study Partners


Partner agencies benefit from getting a Work-Study student paid with Federal subsidized money. Additionally, non-profit agencies do not pay for any costs associated with having a Work-Study student.
