The Community Service Work-Study (CSWS) Program provides academic year and summer employment opportunities for currently enrolled students who receive financial aid at Stanford. It allows them to combine the financial need to work with the personal goal of helping the community.
Eligible students have the freedom to design a service experience in collaboration with a partnering organization. Placements during the academic year are on campus or in the local community. Summer placements can be at qualified organizations anywhere in the United States.
CSWS is a federally-supported program, co-administered for Stanford by the Haas Center and the Financial Aid Office.
All work-study students are employed through Stanford University. The federal government and Stanford University cover 90% of the student's wages and benefits, and the community organization contributes the remaining 10% of the wages. The Financial Aid Office determines eligibility and the maximum earnings each student is allowed per quarter during the academic year. The Summer program wage is set at $18.00/hr and $6,000 /qtr.
Currently enrolled undergraduate students who have a financial aid package may qualify for CSWS, with the following exceptions:
All applicants must obtain an authorization form to verify their work-study eligibility from the Financial Aid Office.
