What is Work Study? 

Upward Bound Work Study is a program where youth participating in the project are exposed to careers requiring a postsecondary degree


Expectations for Work Study

Commit to participate for all 4 weeks

Each week will consist of roughly 8-10 hours of work

Students earn $100/week if they complete the requirements

If you don’t complete the requirements one week you can no longer
participate in the program and will not earn the $100 for that week or future
weeks

If you participate, you will not earn the $60 monthly summer UB stipend, this will be in place of that money
