Department of Veterans AffairsThe GI Bill can help cover many of a Veteran’s expenses, but often there are still bills to pay.  Did you know there is a program that can pay students to help other Veterans right in their own community and do it while attending school?

The Work-Study Program provides part-time employment to students receiving VA education benefits who attend school at three-quarter time or more. Services performed under a VA Work-Study program must be related to VA work.  A student can work at any VA facility; a hospital, a Regional Office, a Vet Center, or even work at the school he or she is attending and help fellow Veteran students.  They are paid either the State or Federal minimum wage, whichever is greater.  It won’t make anyone rich, but it can help bring in some extra cash as well as add to their resume.
