The primary purpose of the Community Service Work Study Program is to provide part-time employment that will encourage students to participate in community service activities that will benefit the community and those in it. One of the program’s goals is to engender in the students a sense of social responsibility and commitment of community.
Community Service Work Study employment must be with a Federal, State, or local public agency or for a private nonprofit organization. Nonprofit organizations must be incorporated as nonprofit under Federal or State law. The agencies that employ TAMU students are charged twenty five percent (25%) of the student’s hourly rate, plus the employee’s taxes. The agencies are responsible for covering its Community Service Work Study student employees under Workers' Compensation insurance.
