VA Work Study

If you are using your VA Educational Benefits (Chapter Benefits), you can apply to be paid for work through the VA. Your job must be directly related to supporting veterans, reservists, dependents, and active duty. While we do have VA work study positions in MAVRC, there are other approved VA Work Study sites!
