Work-study program invites job proposals

Career Development and Experiential Learning has announced a pilot offering of Ignite work-study for Summer 2021 and is accepting job proposals until April 5. If approved for Ignite funding, supervisors will be reimbursed up to $2,000 for payroll costs of hiring an eligible student. The program is open to all eligible UWindsor students registered in summer courses or returning to studies in Fall 2021.

“COVID-19 restrictions throughout the fall and winter presented a challenge for many Ignite positions, which normally would have been offered to additional students or offered more working hours,” says Kerri Zold, manager of Career Development and Experiential Learning. “This pilot will leverage some of the unused funds to provide meaningful, paid part-time or full-time opportunities over the summer.”

Proposals are accepted through Qualtrics until April 5. Applicants whose positions receive funding will be notified by April 30 and students can begin working as early as May 10.

Career Development and Experiential Learning will host information sessions for supervisors at 1 p.m. March 24 and 11 a.m. April 1. Direct questions to program co-ordinator Avy Maharaj at ignite@uwindsor.ca.
