The Work Study program provides a minimum wage subsidy to UBC Okanagan faculty and staff who are committed to providing enriching, educational student employment opportunities.
Working on campus is an excellent way for students to learn through doing, create strong connections within the UBC community, and develop professional skills required for life beyond their degree. If you are considering hiring a student to work in your lab, unit or department, apply now for funding for 2018 Summer and 2018-19 Winter Terms. Proposals will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. on Jan 31, 2018.
