Work-Study (One-Year Certificate Programs)

At the beginning of the academic year, students meet with the full-time program manager and are given work-study application materials and a list of institution-wide work-study opportunities. Students contact the departments where they are interested in working and schedule interviews to discuss their applicable skills and availability. Work-study opportunities are awarded in the following ICP departments: Exhibitions, Community Programs, Library, Alumni Affairs, Post-Production, and the Teaching Assistant Program.

ICP work-study students receive an hourly wage and are allowed to work a maximum of 4 hours per week.
