Federal Work Study

The Work-Study Program supports the McKendree mission in three ways:

1.   It provides part-time limited employment for students, helping reduce the financial barriers to higher education.

2.   It provides a real life learning experience for students, encouraging them to be self-directed in the lifelong learning process.

3.   It provides an effective support service to the college at a reasonable cost, contributing to the effective accomplishment of the goals of the college.
