Student Employment Program
The Eckerd College Student Employment Program is administered through the Office of Career Resources, which is a program of The Center for Career Planning and Applied Learning. The Program includes four primary types of student employment: Federal Work Study, International Work Study, Student Assistantships, and Florida Work Experience.
The Federal Work Study Program is a federal program funded by the U.S. Department of Education with matching funds from Eckerd College. This Program is administered in accordance with Federal regulations, and other instructions issued by, or on behalf of, the U.S. Secretary of Education.
International Work Study is funded through Eckerd College institutional funds.
Student Assistantships are funded either by Eckerd College funds designated through departmental budgets or by outside grants awarded for these positions.
Wages for Federal and International Work Study positions are set to the State of Florida's Minimum Wage Requirements. Student Assistant positions may include an hourly increase in accordance with the current pay structure approved by the Business Office.
