Employment/Volunteer

Federal Work-studyMIMAUE participates in the Federal Work-Study program. Our opportunities may be focused on administrative tasks: program assistance, social media management, researching facts for grants and proposals, editing documents, scheduling, and other administrative tasks. Traditionally students have not only worked for us but have an opportunity to be mentored by minority faculty and to be advised on course work and research opportunities. 

Federal Work-Study provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student’s course of study.

Here’s a quick overview of Federal Work-Study:

  • It provides part-time employment while you are enrolled in school.
  • It’s available to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students with financial need.
  • It’s available to full-time or part-time students.
  • It’s administered by schools participating in the Federal Work-Study Program. Check with your school's financial aid office to find out if your school participates.
