Work Opportunities


The Juilliard School offers numerous on-campus employment opportunities through the Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Juilliard Work-Study (JWS) programs. These include jobs such as giving tours of the School, ushering for student performances, writing for the School’s newspaper, and playing in the Juilliard Lab Orchestra. Students can gain valuable work experience and have many opportunities for community service.

Federal Work-Study. Undergraduate and graduate students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents may be eligible for federally funded jobs.

Juilliard Work-Study. Students who are not eligible for Federal Work-Study are eligible for Juilliard-funded jobs. International students studying under an F-1 visa are eligible to participate; other international students should check with the Office of International Advisement (OIA) for additional restrictions.

Under both programs, students work at the School and are paid hourly. Annual earnings generally range from $1,000 to $3,500 per year.

Additional information and Frequently Asked Questions about the Work-Study program can be found in our publication Funding Your Juilliard Education: A Guide to Financial Aid at Juilliard.
