Make An Impact Within the Ithaca Community

The Off-Campus Community Service Work Study program encourages employment within community service organizations and in fields related to a student’s major of study.

Ithaca College is excited to partner with nonprofit agencies across the Greater Ithaca community through our Off Campus Community Service Program to provide Federal Work Study (FWS)-eligible students with jobs that directly benefit the community and prepare them in their career pursuits and academic discipline(s).

As a Federal Work Study-eligible student, having received an FWS award in your financial aid package, we invite you to apply for a spot in the program. Recruitment and selection occur on a first-come, first-serve basis and students must commit to work at least nine (9) hours weekly. Please apply directly through the IC Student Recruitment Cloud.

This is an opportunity for students to put their learning into practice all while earning money through their work study award. For questions, please contact Student Employment at
