ATTENTION: This program is phasing out, and will no longer be in effect after the Spring 2014 semester. Student groups currently receiving Work-Study through the Center of Community Service may still be eligible to receive work-study through their Staff Advisor. Please contact the Student Employment office or the Center of Community Service with questions.
Northeastern University students who qualify for the Federal Work-Study program as part of their financial aid have the opportunity to earn their work-study funds by volunteering with service-focused student organizations providing volunteer services to off-campus communities.
Students serve as tutors or mentors, run afterschool programming for low-income students and help non-native speakers practice their English. Qualifying student organizations include Peace Through Play, and Strong Women Strong Girls.
If you would like to explore the possibility of connecting your student organization with this program, please contact Student Employment, along with your Staff Advisor.
Off-campus agencies interested in hosting work study positions for students should contact the Northeastern University Student Employment Office directly at 617.373.3200.
