Introducing CU’s SWP! As the cost of a college education continues to rise, so does the importance of achieving it. Unfortunately, this leaves many students with little choice but to graduate with massive debt. Calvary University wants to change that through the Study Work Program.
How does the SWP Work?
Who can apply to the SWP?
Any current students and new students can apply for the program. We receive information about a wide variety of job openings and will work to provide job opportunities to anyone we are able. However, not everyone who gets placed through the Study Work Program qualifies for the SWP scholarship. To be eligible for the SWP Scholarship students must:
- Achieve a 3.0 GPA for the previous semester.
- Be enrolled as a full-time student for the previous semester unless graduating.
- Have a Study Work Program job averaging 15 hours per week or more.
- Successfully complete the previous semester’s Study Work Program.
- Students beginning Study Work Program jobs mid-semester will receive a prorated scholarship based on their start date.
- Receive a positive job reference from the student’s employer.
- Be returning to their Study Work Program job for the upcoming semester
Students who meet these qualifications are our top priority for placement. Additionally, students should be:
- Hard working
- Eager to learn
- Able to represent themselves, Calvary University, and Jesus Christ well through their employment
How can I get started?
Step 1 – Submit your Study Work Program application below!
Step 2 – You will be contacted by SWP staff to work together to prepare a portfolio including a resume and two letters of recommendation.
Step 3 – Once your portfolio is complete, SWP staff will connect with local businesses, churches, and organizations to provide employment opportunities. You will go through the interview process with any potential employer (Note: Both the employer and the student maintain the ability to withdraw from the position at any time.)
Once a student has been placed, the earnings will provide additional tuition funding for the students in the program.
