VA Work-Study Program


VA Work-Study Program

The VA Work-Study Program is available to any eligible veteran or their dependents who are receiving VA education benefits and attending school three-quarter time or more.

The work the veteran or dependent actually does will depend on their individual interests and the type of work available; however, the work must be VA-related. Students will be selected for the work-study program based on their ability to complete the work-study contract before the end of their eligibility and based on job availability.

The program is open to persons training on a full-time or 3/4-time basis under the following programs:

  • Post 9/11 GI Bill® (Chapter 33)
  • Post 9/11 GI Bill® Transfer of Entitlement (Chapter 33)
  • Montgomery GI Bill® Active – MGIB-AD (Chapter 30)
  • Veteran Readiness and Employment – VR&E (Chapter 31)
  • Montgomery GI Bill® Active – MGIB-SR (Chapter 1606)
  • Survivors’ and Dependents’ Educational Assistance – DEA (Chapter 35)
