Work Study

Federal Work-Study is a government-funded program awarded to students who qualify and demonstrate financial need and meet federal work-study requirements. Eligible students have the option to work at The Kennedy Center and therefore gain valuable work experience. Generally, students work six to ten hours a week but can work a maximum of twenty hours per week. Students are paid per hour and are compensated on a weekly basis.

Participation in the work-study program can be beneficial for students in the following ways:

  • Help pay for education and other related expenses
  • Encourage community service and work related to a student’s field of study
  • Students gain valuable work experience
  • Improve job search, time management and budgeting skills
  • Help to further a student’s resume
  • Reference or recommendation for future employment
