All Work Study funds must be approved by the Office of Financial Aid at UNC Charlotte. We cannot hire students who do not have Work Study funding. New tutors must attend a Work Study orientation meeting conducted by the Student Employment Office. Work Study students interested in becoming an America Reads tutor must attend a Work Study orientation and complete a brief RWS interest form. We will invite all interested Work Study students to complete an online application. After reviewing the online application, we select students to become America Reads tutors.
