The Dr. William C. Conrad / Stackpole-Hall Foundation Summer Jobs Program provides work experience at non-profit employers in Elk County for eligible students. Students are employed through the State Work Study Program and are paid directly by the employers. The Stackpole-Hall Foundation provides 40% of the funding for the wages earned, the Pennsylvania State Work Study Program provides 50% and the employers are responsible for the remaining 10%.
Student Eligibility Requirements: • Be a resident of Elk County. • Be enrolled at least half-time (six credits) in a PHEAA approved higher education institution in a program of study at least two years in length. A list of approved institutions can be found below. High School Seniors are eligible as long as they will meet this requirement for the upcoming Fall Semester. • Can not be in default on a student grant or loan. • Undergraduate Students must be a State Grant recipient. Since this determination is made based on financial information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form, students should submit the FAFSA form as soon as possible. • Graduate Students must have unmet need determined by their school.
All eligibility decisions are made by PHEAA. For questions about eligibility, call PHEAA at 1-800-692-7392. You will be prompted to access "Special Programs" and "Work Study" before you can speak with someone.
Students will earn $10.00 per hour and may work up to 480 hours during the summer between May 6 and August 10.
