Work Study Information for Employers

The Work Study Program is a financial aid program funded by Carleton University.  It is intended to supplement the resources of undergraduate students who are in financial need and have the fewest financial options by providing part-time employment on campus.   It is important to note that approval to participate in the program rests with the student and not with the potential employer.

  • Students must apply to participate in the Work Study program each year and be approved by the Awards Office before they can be hired as a work study student.

The Awards Office works in partnership with the Co-op and Career Services Office to administer the Work Study job posting process.

If your department is considering hiring a work study student for the Fall/Winter session, please see Student Academic and Career Development Services for general information on how the program works and posting a position. Job postings are limited to internal Carleton employers. Given the volume of positions for the work study program, we reserve the right to limit the number of positions posted. There is no guarantee that all positions will be filled.

  • Only those students who have been approved to participate in the Work Study program will be given access to view and apply to Work Study positions posted on the mySuccess portal via Carleton Central.
