Work Study Opportunities
The Purpose of the Federal Work-Study Program is to provide part-time employment for students who need the income to help meet the costs of postsecondary education and to encourage FWSP recipients to participate in community service activities. Additionally, by providing a wide range of employment opportunities in various fields, the Federal Work- Study Program helps students to get work experience related to their educational and career objectives.
Here at the Frank W. Hale Jr. Black Cultural Center, students are given the opportunity to work in an environment that is built to support and foster their academic success.
Students learn skills related to:
- Managing special events and programming
- Creating newsletters and publications
- Monitoring computer labs and maintaining protocol
- Secretarial duties and responsibilities
- Management of building maintenance
Also, we monitor our students and their performance on a consistent basis and we reward those who follow the Hale Center values by giving them an opportunity to become a “Student Leader”. Student leaders are given more responsibility than the average work-study student. This experience is instrumental in helping them progress in their career while a student at OSU and in their post graduate career as well. Being a leader of their peers will help build confidence and prepare them to manage others throughout their life.
The Hale Center will continue to work as an agent to help promote diversity at The Ohio State University and Office of Minority Affairs by hosting traditional and nontraditional programs by various ethnic, race and cultural groups.
