Federal Work Study Community Service Program

Students who have been awarded Federal Work Study (FWS) may apply for eligible positions that are aimed at improving the quality of life for community residents. The FWS program is not only an opportunity to improve the surrounding community, but also a great way to build professional experience, network outside UCF and blend academic and personal interests to develop a holistic view point. The University of Central Florida has both on and off campus FWS Community Service opportunities available.

The on-campus Federal Work Study Community Service Program opportunities are located in the following offices:

  • Center for Autism & Related Disabilities
  • Communication and Disorders Clinic
  • Creative School for Children
  • Libraries
  • Student Disability Services

The current off-campus FWS Community Service Program opportunities include:

  • local elementary schools,
  • the Heart of Florida United Way,
  • Audubon Center for Birds of Prey
  • Tech Sassy Girlz
  • JMJ Life Center and
  • the Orlando Science Center.

If a student who has been awarded FWS is interested in participating in one of the off-campus locations, they will need to attend a Federal Work Study Community Service workshop. The Federal Work Study Community Service workshop is typically held during the first two weeks of classes. After the first two weeks of class have passed, students may schedule a one on one workshop with the Federal Work Study Coordinator.

Below are the workshop dates/times for the Spring 2018 term:

Dates Time
January  10th 10am – 11am
January  11th 10am – 11am

Community Services Workshops are only required for students who wish to work at an Off-Campus Community Service Site. The Workshops are located in the Office of Student Financial Assistance, Millican Hall Room 107. Students are advised to arrive at least 5 minutes prior to the Workshop to sign in and be seated.

To register for a Workshop, please email the FWS Coordinator at workstudy@ucf.edu .
