Student Employment Programs

College Work Study Program (CWSP)

The College Work Study Program (CWSP) is administered by the Department of Education and provides part-time employment for undergraduate, graduate and professional students who desire to continue their education but are in financial need.  CWSP students may perform a variety of duties depending upon their qualifications.  Applicants interested in being considered for the CWSP should contact the Financial Aid Office at their college or university.  The Financial Aid Office will help determine student eligibility, negotiating a contract with this office, and referring qualified students when a vacancy occurs.  CWSP students may work up to 19 hours per week during the school year and up to 40 hours per week during summer and spring breaks.  CWSP students are not considered federal government employees.

Student Temporary Employment Program

There are a limited number of Student Temporary Employment Program (STEP) positions in this office.  To be eligible for this program, students must be enrolled in or accepted for enrollment in an accredited high school, technical or vocational school, two-year or four-year college or university, graduate or professional school.  Students must be taking at least a half-time academic, vocational or technical course load leading to a degree, diploma, or certificate program.  Students are given one-year temporary appointments, which may be extended by up to one-year increments, as long as they continue to meet the definition of a student.  Students may work full or part-time, as long as the hours worked does not interfere with their academic studies.  Any student interested in applying to this program should submit their resume to:

Student Volunteer Program

The U.S. Attorney's Office also employs student volunteers.  Student volunteers perform service without pay, but sometimes can earn college credit through their college or university.  To be eligible, students must be enrolled not less than half-time in an educational institution.  Written agreements between the educational institution and the U.S. Attorney's Office are prepared and adhered to.  Students may or may not be assigned duties which directly relate to their course of study.  Student volunteers are not federal government employees.  However, time spent as a student volunteer is documented.  Any student interested in applying to this program should submit their resume to:
