Student Employment Opportunities
The Department employs students for a range of positions within the department. The BE Labs are run by students, many with prior wood and metal experience. The most common position is teaching and research assistants for various professors and faculty within the department.
What is Work-Study?
To qualify for Work-Study jobs you must demonstrate financial need and have a Work-Study award as part of your overall financial aid award. To determine work-study eligibility, a FAFSA must be submitted. If you have financial need and haven't been awarded Work Study you can talk to a financial aid counselor at the UW Office of Student Financial Aid www.washington.edu/students/osfa/ about being placed on the Work Study waiting list. Please keep in mind that Work Study is only one type of job on campus. There are non-work study positions on-campus and other part-time employment jobs off-campus too.
In a Work Study program, the employer pays only 20-50 percent of the student's wages; the rest is subsidized by federal or state funds. International students are ineligible for Work-Study.
