What is CalWORKs Work Study (CWWS)?
Our CalWORKs Work Study Program provides CalWORKs students with on-campus work opportunities, as funding permits. This is an excellent opportunity for students to gain valuable, hands-on experience while still participating in an education training program.
What are the benefits of CalWORKs Work Study?
Work study income is exempt from calculation of the CalWORKs cash aid grant and the hours worked in a work study job count toward the weekly CalWORKs participation requirement. Work study opportunities allow students to work up to 20 hours a week when classes are in session.
Also, employers receive 75% reimbursement of the student's wage from the CalWORKs Work Study program. For students receiving Federal Work Study, this allows a student’s Federal Work Study grant to receive minimal use. Essentially, this “stretches” the grant and, most times, it will last throughout the fiscal year, July 1 through June 30.
