Off-Campus Employers

This page is dedicated to government/public agencies and private nonprofit organizations that have been approved or hope to be approved to hire and employ University of Iowa (UI) students part-time (20 hours per week maximum; 40 hours per week maximum during breaks) through the Federal Work-Study Program.  Regular correspondence occurs via email between Student Financial Aid and approved Off-Campus Work-Study employers.  It is important that the off-campus employer notifies Student Financial Aid of any email address changes.

Currently, over thirty community employers representing non-profit or government agencies are approved to hire Work-Study employees. The employer pays 50% of the student's wage up to $12/hour and 100% of the wage above $12/hour.  The Work-Study program pays the remaining 50% until the student has earned the amount of their Work-Study offer.
