Foreign Jobs Guide

The Work-Study jobs can be on or off campus. If you work on campus, you'll usually work for your school. If you work off campus, your employer will usually be a private nonprofit organization or a public agency, and the work performed must be in the public interest.
Some schools might have agreements with private for-profit employers for Federal Work-Study jobs. These jobs must be relevant to your course of study, to the maximum extent possible.
If you attend a proprietary school, there might be further restrictions on the jobs you can be assigned.
