Student Financial Services facilitates the placement of eligible Vassar students in Community Service Work Study (CSWS) positions. Through CSWS, students whose offers of financial aid include a Federal Work Study allotment have the opportunity to work at local nonprofits or public sector organizations that provide services to benefit the local community. Education is the primary focus of this program, with job placements in tutoring, literacy, after-school programs, community advocacy, elder care, and the like. Students are expected to attend orientation, training, and reflection/evaluation programs as part of their hours worked.

Nonprofits and public sector organizations interested in becoming community partners are invited to contact Student Employment at or (845) 437-5286.

Current community partners will find the resources they need to post job opportunities and to manage student employees on these pages.

We look forward to collaborating with you to provide a rewarding and mutually beneficial experience for all.
