Eligible students have the opportunity to earn federal work-study funding for their work with a participating, non-profit Community Partner.

Are you interested in supporting the efforts of a non-profit, community service organization? Are you looking to gain work experience and create connections with professionals in your area of interest? Would practical experiences enhance your field of study? Could you use financial support as you pursue your degree at Penn State? Consider joining the Community Service Federal Work-Study (CSFWS) Program!

Some current Community Partners of the CSFWS Program include Shaver's Creek Environmental Center, Centre Wildlife Care, Millbrook Marsh Nature Center, Centre Helps, Habitat for Humanity, Mid-State Literacy Council, State College Meals on Wheels, and The Village at Penn State. The CSFWS Program also offers Nittany Lions Read/Nittany Lions Count, a FWS program that focuses on placing eligible Penn State students in local early childhood centers, elementary/middle schools, and science/nature centers. There are opportunities to partner with additional qualifying organizations that meet the eligibility criteria.
