More than half of all UMF students benefit from our student employment programs. Each year we offer students a number of convenient on-campus Work-Study jobs and on-campus Student Work Initiative jobs. Some positions are scheduled during school hours and many others take place after classes and on weekends.

Our two main student employment opportunities programs at UMF are the Federal Work-Study program and the Student Work Initiative program.

Federal Work-Study is awarded to financially needy, on-time aid applicants as determined by information submitted on the FAFSA. Our Student Work Initiative program is a UMF program for students who were not awarded Federal Work-Study and still wish to work.

Some jobs are on-campus, some are off-campus. Some require heavy lifting (campus Fitness & Recreation Center). Some require heavy thinking (environmental research or tutoring). Some involve high creativity (web design or photography). Some high patience (working with children). But no matter what job you take, you’ll gain valuable resume-building experience that will pay off now and pay off later on.

Here’s a list of current Student Employment Opportunities and a deep dive into the details.
