Work-Study

Bryant University provides part-time employment opportunities for work-study eligible students to assist them in meeting the cost of education. Students awarded Federal Work-Study (or Bryant University Student Employment) as part of their financial aid package are encouraged to consider these opportunities which are designed to defray the cost of education-related expenses while enrolled.

 Bryant University employment as listed on the Financial Aid Statement is an estimated amount a student can earn IF he or she gets a job on campus. This amount DOES NOT get deducted from the student's bill. Due to the volatile nature of the job market, student employment and/or the amount of gross earnings cannot be guaranteed.

Interested students should check the website frequently to see what new positions are available.

A limited number of off-campus community service positions are also available to students who qualify for Federal Work-Study. Some examples of these positions include:

  • Water Safety Instructor - American Red Cross 
  • Human Services Intern - Big Sisters of Rhode Island
  • Camp Counselors - Boys and Girls Club
  • Tutors - Greenville Library and RIREADS
  • Various positions - Providence Children's Museum
  • Various positions - State of Rhode Island Intern Program

Students must have their own transportation for these positions. If interested, please contact Steve Winsor at (401) 232-6923 or swinsor@bryant.edu.

It is the student's responsibility to acquire a position and complete all proper paperwork prior to beginning work. Students who attain employment on-campus must complete and submit to the Office of Financial Aid a Student Payroll Authorization, a W-4 Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificate, and an I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form. Students must have proper identification in original form to complete an I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form. This form (and other work-study documents) can be found here.

Students may work no more than 20 hours per week. Pay rates begin at minimum wage. After employment is secured, the student will be paid every two weeks for the hours worked.
