On and Off-Campus Work-Study Jobs

As part of a financial aid package, students who apply for aid can sometimes be awarded work-study money.  Students must accept their work-study allocation and work either on or off campus to earn that money.

Work study helps you gain hands-on experience either working for departments or individual faculty at Waterbury UConn, or off-campus making connections in the community.  You learn a positive work ethic in a supportive environment, hone your interpersonal skills and gain additional skills in computers and general office management.  If you work for professors, you will gain expertise in a particular area such as Urban and Community Studies, Biology, or Human Development and Family Studies.

If you are awarded work-study, apply for an on- or off-campus job:  For On-Campus Work Study jobs, contact Kit Casey in Room 228B or e-mail  For an off-campus work-study job, contact Dr. Ruth Glasser:
