Federal Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study Program provides employment opportunities for students who qualify. Students who meet the requirements for the program will be notified through their financial aid package. A percentage of a student's wages is covered by federal funds and the remainder comes from Bucknell. Except for students in the Presidential Fellows program, students are not placed in jobs at Bucknell, so they can apply for jobs that interest them through the Bison@Work platform.

For questions about your financial aid awards, contact:
Office of Financial Aid
621 Saint George Street

The Community Service Federal Work-Study Program

The Community Service Federal Work-Study Program seeks to match nonprofit organizations with federal work-study eligible Bucknell students who are seeking job opportunities in the local community. Student employees are paid with federal grant money and are able to work within these organizations, as long as the position benefits local residents or the public good.

This program is administered by the Office of Civic Engagement, who encourages local nonprofit agencies and institutions to design and submit descriptions of jobs that Bucknell students could do for them under the agency's management and supervision.
