Earn While You Learn!

The CalWORKs Work-Study program assists students in earning cash while learning important job skills through on-campus opportunities.

In addition to enhancing your job skills and gaining valuable on-the-job training, by participating in the CalWORKs Work Study program you will become better prepared for your careers after college. Cash earned through work-study does not affect your cash aid.
