Monitoring Work-Study Awards

Tutors are typically given a Work-Study award of $3,000 for the academic year. At a pay rate of $13.25 per hour, this award amount generally allows a tutor to work an average of 7 hours per week.

Tutors are expected to monitor their award balances to ensure that they do not run out of funds before the end of the academic year. This information is available in the Work section of the Student Link, under Work-Study Award Information.

The tutor contract requires that all tutors fulfill the full academic year obligation at their sites. Tutors must work until the last day of university classes each semester. Work during study period and finals week is optional.

Tutor employment will be terminated when all Work-Study funds are expended.

Tutors may not work for BUILD on a volunteer basis.
