Financial aid usually includes federally subsidized employment eligibility called Work-Study. Dartmouth students typically work 10-12 hours per week. The money earned is yours to use for out-of-pocket expenses, such as travel, books, and personal care items. Work-study funds do not reduce your bill with the college.
Many faculty members have Work-Study research positions available in their labs. The Work-Study Program also encourages community service and there are paid employment service opportunities through Dartmouth and with local organizations.
