The Federal Work-Study Program (FWSP) encourages the part-time employment of UCSB's undergraduate and graduate students. Their earnings help them to defray the cost of their education. To the maximum extent practicable, FWSP positions should complement and reinforce a recipient's academic and/or career goals, serve the public interest and, whenever possible, directly involve the recipient in community service activities.

Your agency can help us meet this goal by identifying existing and/or developing new employment opportunities within your organization and community.

Visit the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships website for their "Work-Study Program Employer Handbooks" for on-campus departments and non-profit agencies; information on the "Changes to Work-Study Job Board"; and instuctions on "How to Post a Work-Study Job?".
