How Does the Work Study Program Operate?

Companies partner with the Corporate Work Study Program for full-time entry level jobs.

  • Students work 5 days a month as a member of a 4 student team. See chart below.
  • Work hours are from 8:30am – 4:30pm during the academic calendar year, from August to June.
  • Students do not miss class time.
  • Companies pay $31,200 for each 4-member student team in 2018-2019.
  • CWSP is responsible for the transportation of students to and from work, and handles all insurance issues, worker’s compensation, Department of Labor compliance, I-9 completion and work permits associated with the student interns.
  • A CWSP team member is assigned to each corporate partner to co-manage the students with supervisors.
  • Hub locations include downtown Los Angeles, Century City, Pasadena, South Bay, Long Beach, and Santa Monica.
