Community Work-Study

Engage@EMU operates the Community Work-Study Program (CWSP) where undergraduate students can earn their awarded work-study funds and gain experience by working with local community-focused government agencies or charitable non-profit organizations.

For the Winter 2019 semester, our partners are as follows:

There are a number of positions available in a variety of areas, including volunteer recruitment, social media management and tutoring. The organization provides regular, weekly working schedules to students. All positions pay $10 an hour. The average work study award would allow students to work approximately 10 hours a week.
