What is the Work-Study Program?


The Work-Study Program was created to stimulate and promote part-time employment for students who have financial need.  It allows students to meet their educational expenses and provides an opportunity for students to gain work experience, as well as providing essential services to the University and the community.

Employers, please be sure that you work closely with your employees to submit the required documentation in a timely manner, as work-study is awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. Once funds are depleted, the award will no longer be available. You are responsible for ensuring the award has been posted in PPS prior to any of your employees beginning their work-study employment. Please see the links to the left for additional information and access to the required forms.

This website provides information on the work-study process for UC Davis employers. For information on posting a job, hiring a student, and policies and procedures relating to employment, please visit the Internship and Career Center website.
