Work Study Program for 2018-19 Launches

Part-time Work on Campus Aids Students


Selkirk College’s Work Study program offers an opportunity for students to work part-time on campus in jobs that accommodate their studies. Proposals for the 2018-19 term are now being accepted.

Financial Aid Services is responsible for administering this program with the following objectives:

• To assist students with a source of income
• To offer students training and experience that will assist them in further studies and their eventual entrance into the workforce
• To assist staff and faculty

Financial Aid is now accepting proposals through an online fillable form. All proposals for the upcoming year will be evaluated on an equal bases before being approved for funding. Please complete the form no later than May 5, 2018. Every effort will be made to evaluate your request as quickly as possible and communicate back to you if the proposal has been approved or denied.

Departments may request more than one position through the proposal process. All approvals will be allocated based on funding availability and confirmed by the Joint Work Study Committee. Please do not assume positions from previous years are automatically approved for the coming year. Positions are not considered part of the Work Study program until approval confirmation from the Financial Aid Office has been communicated to the respective supervisor. Supervisors will also receive a work study hand book at that time.
