Work Study

A group of students as Color Guard

Work Study Program

This a Veterans Affairs (VA) program that employs eligible students to work in the UVU Veteran Success Center.  Work studies are VA employees but they work on UVU campus to help students utilize their GI Bill®* benefits. Many of our work studies enjoy this opportunity because our office tries to be flexible and accommodate their school schedule when possible. In addition, our office is located on campus which makes it convenient to move between work and classes. This program provides work studies an opportunity to learn how their own benefit functions and to network and interact with other military-connected people.

You are eligible if you are a full-time or a three-quarter time student in a college degree, vocational, or professional program and using GI Bill® benefits.
