The Federal Work-Study program provides employment opportunities for students. A percentage of a student's wages will be covered by these federal funds, and the remainder will come from Bucknell. Students work an average of about 8-10 hours per week, and are typically paid bi-weekly. Therefore, your Work-Study award should not be subtracted from your bill, since the amount earned will depend upon the hours worked. We also have other jobs for students who do not have Federal Work-Study as part of their financial aid packages. Except for students in the Presidential Fellow program, students are not "placed" in jobs at Bucknell, so they can apply for jobs that interest them.
