Eligible veterans, either full- or 3/4-time students in a degree, vocational, or professional program, can take advantage of a VA Work-Study Program, often referred to as “Earn While You Learn.” This program is designed to assist the veteran (and the institution) both financially and professionally. Work performed must be related to the VA and can include, but is not limited to:

  • Processing VA paperwork at schools or VA offices;
  • Performing outreach services on campus, under the supervision of a VA employee;
  • Performing services at VA medical facilities, other VA offices or state employment offices;
  • Working in veterans admissions, GI Bill matters and/or as a peer navigator; or
  • Making phone calls, sending emails and welcoming new students to campus.

Most importantly, the work completed should be linked to the veteran’s interests and abilities and the type of work needed by the institution. The VA Work-Study Program allows for creative, fulfilling, and meaningful experiences for the student veteran and a knowledgeable and committed employee for the institution.
The VA Work Study Application can be found here at the VA Website.
