Meaningful Work Student Employment Program

One of the opportunities that NASS provides for first-year students is the Meaningful Work student employment program. Students who apply and interview will be placed with the department that best fits their needs. These work experiences are specifically designed to help students build marketable job skills and give students knowledge of the many departments and opportunities on campus.


  • First-Year Student: a student who has just graduated from high school.
  • NASS eligible: a student that receives the Native American tuition waiver or that self-identifies as Native American on their application for admission.
  • You do not have to be eligible for work-study to take part in this program.
  • Transfer students are not eligible to be employed in the program due to federal grant guidelines.
