Federal Work Study

The Federal Work Study program provides part-time employment to students attending institutions of higher education who need the earnings to help meet their educational expenses. The program is also designed to help students gain valuable work experience and to serve the community in community service jobs.

Federal Work Study funds are very limited and not all students who qualify will be awarded. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list for Work Study funds, complete the "Free Application for Federal Student Aid" (FAFSA) by March 2, indicating on the FAFSA that you want Federal Work Study. In addition, you must complete an Information Update Form and submit it to the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships.

Community Service

Community Service jobs are employment with non-profit agencies in the community that are designed to improve the quality of life for the community. Examples of the community service jobs could be helping low-income individuals, literacy training, tutoring, social services, neighborhood improvement, public safety, and assisting "at-risk" youth.

There is also a variety of community service work opportunities available with non-profit agencies located near the Cal Poly Pomona campus. Community service jobs pay rates are competitive and vary depending on the type of work and the experience of the student.
