Work-Study / Workstudy
The Work-Study Program offers financial assistance to students enrolled at Duke University who need part-time jobs to help defray a portion of their college expenses. As an incentive for University departments to employ students in part-time jobs, the department pays only a portion of the salary cost and the remaining portion is paid by either:
-the Federal Government through College Work-Study or
-the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office through the Duke Work-Study (funded totally by the University)
A student's eligibility for work-study funds is determined by the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office. For a student under the Duke Work-Study Program, 50% of the salary is paid by the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office and 50% is paid by the department for whom the student is working. Under the College Work-Study Program, 75% of the salary is paid by the Federal Government and 25% is paid by the department for whom the student is working (note: these percentages are for fiscal year 01/02 and may change for future years).
