Community Service Work-Study

For Employers


Community Service Work-Study job postings for the spring semester are ongoing!

Community Service Work-Study jobs for the summer 2016 can be now posted, although students will not be able to apply until they receive confirmation of work-study eligibility from MIT Student Financial Services:

  • Incoming freshmen will not be able to work over the summer.
  • Undergraduate students who submit all required documents by April 15th will know their eligibility by late May/Early June.
  • Graduate students will know their eligibility by mid-May/June as long as they submit the required documents and complete the FAFSA.

Please read carefully the List of Employer Responsibilities and then contact the Community Employment Administrator at if you want to post a job.

Could you use some extra help? In addition to coordinating volunteer projects, the Priscilla King Gray Public Service Center offers Community Service Work-Study opportunities to graduate and undergraduate students who qualify for Federal Work-Study. Our goal is to connect student workers with non-profit, educational, and governmental organizations striving to improve quality of life for community residents -- particularly low-income or underserved individuals -- or to solve specific problems related to their needs.

MIT students can help with your organization's immediate needs and so much more. Do you need someone to organize a fundraising event, manage volunteers, create a database, or even recruit more MIT students to help out? We encourage employers to use students as problem solvers, and we have found that jobs involving creative thinking often fill the quickest. Job openings can be advertised for term time, January, or even the summer.
