The College Work-Study Program at Boston College.
McCarthy, Joseph M.; And Others
During the calendar year 1968, Boston College provided jobs for 783 students under the Federal College Work-Study Program. The jobs ranged from simple clerical to complex community service and computer operation positions, and every attempt was made to place students in positions related to the individual's educational experience and career goals. Full-time students who are U.S. citizens or nationals, or are in this country for other than temporary purposes, are capable of maintaining good academic standing while employed, and are determined by the institution to be in need of aid from part-time earnings, are eligible to work under this program. When a student's eligibility has been established, he is given an authorization form certifying this fact and is sent to an on- or off-campus employer for an interview. When the student and an agency supervisor have reached agreement, the student is placed on the payroll. The agency supervisor then submits weekly timesheets stating the number of hours the student has worked, and the student is paid accordingly. (Author/HS)
