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 completing an off-campus study, participating in an internship, a co-op work term, or writing their thesis from home, 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 may engage in additional employment for up to 520 hours annually, which translates to an average of 10-hours per week across the year.  There is no restriction on work hours for part-time students.  Generally, graduate students in a course-based program taking three or more courses are considered full-time.
