Work-Study Opportunities

The Juilliard School offers numerous on-campus employment opportunities through the Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Juilliard Work-Study (JWS) programs.


Students who are U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents may be eligible for the federally-funded FWS program. Students who are not eligible for FWS may be eligible for JWS. Most international students are eligible to work under the JWS program, but should check with the Office of International Advisement (OIA) prior to accepting any on-campus employment.

Under both programs, students work at the School and are paid hourly. Pay rates typically range from $9.00 to $12.00 per hour, and vary based on level of responsibility, specialized skills required, etc. Annual earnings generally range form $1,000 to $3,500 per year.
