Graduate students also have opportunities to engage in part-time or full-time work to fund their studies. Be sure to take note of the time and hours a given job requires, as many positions may not be compatible with full-time graduate level study or class schedules. Please note that international students are typically restricted from working more than 20 hours per week, and may not be eligible for some job opportunities that require U.S. citizenship or permanent residency.



The Federal Work Study Program is a federally-funded work program that allows students who qualify to earn money while working at a pre-approved organization: GW departments, local nonprofits, government agencies and community service employers.



Employment opportunities at the George Washington University include part-time student jobs (including work study), employment with campus housing, and full or part-time university employment. The pay and benefits differ by position, so please check with potential employers before accepting jobs. University employees may receive tuition remission benefits.



Graduate students may want to pursue professional job opportunities outside of GW to fund their studies. GW offers many career services to students looking for jobs and internships. At the graduate level, career services are decentralized, so students will want to contact their schools or departments careers services office for more information.
