Because VETS is a student-run organization, there are a limited number of paid positions available to anyone utilizing their VA Educational benefits, including spouses and dependents who have had VA Educational benefits transferred to them.

VA Work Study Position

If you’re a full-time or 3/4-time student in a college degree, vocational, or professional program, you can “earn while you learn” with a VA work-study allowance. You’ll earn an hourly wage equal to the Federal minimum wage or your State minimum wage, whichever is greater.

Though VETS itself has a limited number of positions, a VA Work Study position is guaranteed to any veteran using VA educational benefits. Learn more at
