The Work-Study Program

Since Pacific University participates in the Federal Work-Study program, it is possible for some students to earn their awards in community service agencies. Funds are limited, and more agencies express interest in having students work in their programs than can be accommodated, but non-profit, community service, and governmental agencies are welcome to inquire about their potential qualification for participation in this program.

Generally agencies are recruited in June and determined by the end of July, if you are interested in receiving information, please contact Internship Coordinator Stephanie L. H. Krusemark at 503-352-2845 or

For more information on the Federal Work-Study community service program, please review the below Supervisor's Manual.
