The Work-Study Program was initiated in 1997 to provide supplementary financial assistance for those students with documented financial need in the form of current government student loans. Work-Study is coordinated by Financial Aid & Awards and Career Services.
Work-Study offers part-time, on-campus employment for students with documented financial need (see student eligibility below) at the University of Manitoba during the regular academic session (summer session excluded). The program offers students an opportunity to gain work experience and skills related to their field of study while beneficially combining work and study in one place.
If you would like to register for the Work-Study Program please visit Career Connect, select Work Study on the left navigation and complete the Work Study Program Application prior to Nov. 28th or contact the program coordinator: firstname.lastname@example.org. The original Student Application deadline for 2016/17 was September 12th. Once students have been pre-approved for the program they can view and apply to Work-Study postings.
*Extended deadline for new and re-posted Work Study positions is Nov. 30, 11:59pm.*
Student eligibility for the Work-Study Program is based upon students meeting this criteria:
Have proof of a 2016-2017 government student aid package of at least $2,000; or, proof of 2016-2017 Indigenous band sponsorship.
