Work-Study Program

The Federal work-study program is a source of financial aid that is awarded by the Financial Aid Office and is based upon unmet financial need and availability of funding. 

If you have work-study listed as part of your financial aid package, you are eligible to participate in the Michigan Tech work-study program and can apply for all work-study positions through HuskyJOBS. These part-time, on-campus jobs are available in numerous departments across campus.

Be sure to review the work-study program Work-Study Guidelines for more information and detailed instructions for an easy and efficient process.

If you have not been awarded work-study, because you may be ineligible or funding has been exhausted, you are encouraged to seek alternative on-campus or community employment.
