Student Employment & Federal Work Study

Financial Aid
Field Work

Student Employment assists in financing educational expenses and provides a valuable service to Prescott College and local community projects.   Positions continually become available in College departments, at special events, with orientations, campus tours and admissions work, as well as supporting faculty and academic programs. Off-campus community opportunities include working with local schools, farms, libraries, and other service organizations.

Student Employment supervisors understand that a student’s primary responsibility is to her or his course work. Accommodations are made in scheduling and work hours whenever possible. Many jobs can be related to academic pursuits and helpful to future careers.  Overall, Student Employment is a great way to help fund your education and gain valuable work experience.

Students may be employed with federal or institutional work-study funds.  Federal Work-Study funds are awarded to students by the Financial Aid office. Institutional work-study funds are made available to campus departments for the purpose of employing students in part-time jobs.
