Work-study positions to join myCareer system

Campus employers hoping to submit job proposals for the 2012 work-study program will see changes in the process, but participating students should experience no difference.

The program funds part-time employment for students demonstrating genuine financial need – generally at no cost to campus employers.

Students apply through the “awards search” on the Student Information System or myUWindsor portal; the Student Awards and Financial Aid office determines their eligibility. The student application and approval process will remain unchanged.
