Work-Study is a government-subsidized student employment program designed to assist students in financing their post-secondary education. These types of jobs are different from other types of part-time jobs because employers must be approved ahead of time. Work-Study may be particularly appealing to employers because they only have to pay 30% of the student’s wages – the remaining 70% is paid by the Work-Study program.
