Veteran Services Office
The VA Work-Study program at CCRI is an opportunity for student veterans to maintain part-time employment while pursuing their college education. Students serving in the program will work out of one of the four Veteran Services Office located at each of the four campuses and act as liaisons between the VA, CCRI and veterans in pursuit of their education. A work-study participant might, for example, handle paperwork, field questions both over the phone or in person, disseminate pertinent information to veterans throughout the school and organize veteran events.
The VA work-study allowance is available to persons training on a full-time or ¾ time basis under the following programs:
You’ll earn an hourly wage equal to the Federal minimum wage or your State minimum wage, whichever is greater. If you’re in a work-study job at a college or university, your school may pay you the difference between the amount VA pays and the amount the school normally pays other work-study students doing the same job as you.
You may elect to be paid in advance for 40% of the number of hours in your work-study agreement, or for 50 hours, whichever is less. After you’ve completed the hours covered by your first payment, the VA will pay you each time you complete 50 hours of service OR bi-weekly, whichever comes first.
You may work during or between periods of enrollment. You can arrange with VA to work any number of hours you want during your enrollment. But, the total number of hours you work can’t be more than 25 times the number of weeks in your enrollment period.
There are currently 15 work-study positions available at CCRI: 7 at Warwick, 3 each in Providence and Lincoln, and 2 in Newport.
