Working on campus is an excellent way for students to learn through doing, create strong connections within the UBC Community and develop professional skills required for life beyond their degree.

The Work Study Program provides a minimum wage subsidy to faculty and staff at UBC's Okanagan campus who are committed to providing outstanding on-campus employment opportunities for students. Funding is awarded to eligible employers via a competitive application and adjudication process.
