Non-Profit Work-Study Employers

Non-profit organizations may be eligible to participate in the Federal Work-Study (FWS) employer program to hire eligible Dartmouth undergraduate students to work part-time for their organization at a reduced cost. These unique work experiences offer eligible students the opportunity to work in non-profit organizations throughout the Upper Valley and beyond. Federal Work-Study will cover 75% of the student’s wages and the contracted non-profit organization is responsible for the remaining 25%. 

In order to be eligible for this program, an organization must be a non-profit organization and be able to submit proof of that status. A job description for the student will need to be filled out. This job cannot displace any current worker nor can the non-profit organization have other members of the organization doing this same job without pay.  If the organization hires someone other than a work-study student for this same job, that person will also have to be paid the same gross wage that the work-study student is paid. More details are available in our Non-Profit FWS Program Employer Guide.

If you are a non-profit organization interested in considering this opportunity, please contact the Student Employment Office.

Who can use JobX?

Local private individuals or businesses who wish to hire Dartmouth students on a part-time (often 'short-term') basis are welcome to post these off-campus employment opportunities through our Student Employment Portal.

Retail, office, childcare, yard care, and tutoring positions are some examples of current and past postings. Summer job listings from near and far are also welcome. We will post jobs for food servers, but for liability reasons, we do not post positions looking for student bartenders for private or home parties. Additionally, we will never post positions that are 'commission-only', where applicants must pay a fee, unpaid opportunities, or on behalf of third-party recruiters who cannot disclose the company and brand name they are representing.

Please note: All internship opportunities or professional, post-graduate employment listings should be posted on the Center for Professional Development website.

All job listings are posted at the discretion of the Student Employment Office (SEO). SEO will not post jobs that appear to discriminate against applicants on the basis of age, sex, pregnancy, race, color, marital status, religion, sexual harassment, national origin, physical disability, mental disability or sexual orientation. Additionally, we will never post positions that are 'commission-only', where applicants must pay a fee, unpaid opportunities, or on behalf of third-party recruiters who cannot disclose the company and brand name they are representing. SEO reserves the right to refuse to post jobs that do not support the interests of the college and/or the students.

SEO acts only as a referral service and makes no particular recommendations regarding potential employers or employees.  Neither Dartmouth College nor the Student Employment Office makes any representation or guarantee whatsoever about any position listed through the JobX, nor does Dartmouth College or the Student Employment Office assume any responsibility for safety, wages, working conditions, or any other aspect of off-campus employment.

While job listings are intended to reach Dartmouth College students, employers must expect that jobs may be viewable by the general public.
