Work-Study with Athens Area Habitat

Athens Area Habitat for Humanity offers several work-study positions for students attending the University of Georgia.

Before applying, you must first qualify for Federal Work Study (FWS) with the UGA Office of Student Financial Aid: Click here for instructions.

These positions are paid through the UGA Student Financial Aid program. The current rate is $11.50/hr. and students may work between 10 and 20 hours per week for fall and spring semesters (positions are normally for 2 semesters). The total of allowable hours over each of the two semesters is determined by your Financial Aid award package, which is based on need. While Athens Habitat will track hours and submit time sheets, interns are actually employed by UGA, not Habitat.

If you are eligible for FWS, you may apply for an internship with Athens Area Habitat through UGA Handshake or by submitting a cover letter along with a resume or CV to Paul Farr at — please specify in the email which position you are applying for.

Here are the opportunities available for the 2021-2022 academic year (spring only):
