Information for employers

How does it work?

The Work Study program provides students in financial need with job opportunities on and around campus. Students apply independently in Minerva to be Work Study eligible. Student Aid decisions are displayed on the student’s Minerva application and are accessible to the student only. Students have the ability to produce a Work Study Confirmation letter to share with prospective employers, valid for 30 days and with the ability to reproduce as needed. Accepted students apply for jobs that interest them by contacting you directly. Students must apply for Work Study approval each year.

The program offers subsidies to McGill faculties, departments and administrative units - by Supervisory ORG - when a Work Study student is hired in a Work Study eligible job and the Supervisory ORG that used to pay the student has approved hours remaining in the Work Study Management system. 

New employers need to request access to the Work Study Subsidy Management system by submitting a request using the New On-campus Supervisor Request form.

Each academic year employers will request subsidy hours needed by term for intended Work Study eligible jobs under a given Supervisory ORG.
