Work-Study Program

Program Objective

Work-Study is a subsidized work program designed to assist students in financial need with the high costs associated with post-secondary study. The program provides students with an opportunity to gain valuable career-related skills/experience in an on-campus, part-time employment situation. Work-Study is completed in collaboration with the Financial Aid Office and Career Development and Student Employment Service.

Eligible candidates are full-time students (registered in three or more classes) attending UNB, who have met the minimum GPA requirement of 2.0 and are not on academic probation.  (Students who will be off-campus, for example, participating in an internship, a co-op work term, writing their thesis from home or working in a practicum are not eligible.)

Eligible candidates are Canadian Citizens, Landed Immigrants or International students (exchange students are not eligible).

Please Note:  According to the Employment of Graduate Students Guidelines, graduate students in either a thesis-based or course-based program studying full-time can be employed for no more than 10 hours per week.  Generally, graduate students in a course-based program taking three or more courses are considered full-time.
