COMMUNITY WORK-STUDY FELLOWSHIPS provide federal work-study funds for academic-year community-engaged work with local non-profit agencies.  Students can apply for jobs already listed for local organizations.  Students may also work as literacy or math tutors in the local schools through the AMERICA READS/AMERICA COUNTSprogram.  Students MUST qualify for federal work-study funds.  Compensation is at a rate of $9/hour.  Host agencies must agree to reimburse Bates College for 25% of the student’s total earnings.   For more information, contact Marty Deschaines at the Harward Center for Community Partnerships.  Click here to download a community work-study application or click here to download an America Reads/America Counts application.
