Washington and Lee University employs over a 1000 students in Work-Study Program and Department Funded positions. Across campus, various positions are available for students to apply, such as academic departments, administrative offices, etc.
The Work-Study program consists of two separate work programs: Institutional Work-Study (IWS) and Federal Work-Study (FWS). The goal of Work-Study is to provide employment opportunities to enrolled students who are receiving some form of financial assistance, whether it be merit or need-based. Through the Work-Study program, students may earn money to cover educational costs and gain experience relevant to their major or career interests.
Department Funded Student Employment
Students who are not eligible for the Work-Study program may work on campus in a department funded position. The student's earnings are paid with funds from the department for which the student works.
