Innovations in Federal Work-Study Community Service

California Campus Compact is pleased to announce a new feature on our website that highlights innovative integration of Federal Work-Study funding in service learning. The featured cutting-edge projects represent programs at six widely-varied California campuses?Glendale Community College, California College of the Arts, California State University Fresno, the University of Redlands, the University of San Diego, and Stanford University.

Each of these campuses demonstrates how Federal Work-Study can enhance service-learning practice, offer FWS-eligible students exciting and meaningful experiences, deepen and expand community partnerships, and enhance educational attainment and access for the next generation of students. In addition, all of the programs represent ways that service learning offices can work through financial aid offices to fund critical services and support systems. The innovations build on research and best practices in Federal Work-Study community service developed by Marsha Adler and Erin Bowley through grants to CACC and Campus Compact from Learn and Serve America.

To access the new site, go to, or by going to our homepage at and then clicking on CACC Programs and then Federal Work-Study.
