What is the VA Work-Study Program?

“The VA Work-Study Allowance Program offers an additional non-taxable allowance to students in return for performing VA-related activities. It serves as a supplemental VA education benefit and often provides the additional funding that allows a student to pursue and accomplish educational goals.”

Students must be enrolled at a rate of ¾ time or greater and using VA Educational Benefits to be eligible to participate in the VA Work-Study Program.

As a VA work study at AU Central, you will assist the Veteran Services Team with general questions regarding VA Benefits to walk-ins, newly admitted students, and parents. Additionally, you'll assist the Veteran Services team in general office duties, administrative tasks, or other VA related tasks during your shift. VA Work Study students will be required to attend orientation and additional trainings and resources will be available to assist in your work responsibilities.

For the Spring 2021 semester VA Work Study Participation at AU Central-Veteran Services will be limited to students who have participated in the VA Work Study program in past semesters.

New students to the VA Work Study program are encouraged to complete the VA Work Study Application and submit this application the the VA Regional Processing Office to see if other VA Work Study opportunities are available remotely or in the surrounding area.
