1 What is it? How can it help me? Michigan State University Office for International Students and Scholars

2 Background Information The International Student Employment Assistance (ISEA) program is a new financial aid program designed to help international students who demonstrate financial need to compete for better on-campus jobs. The Office for International Students and Scholars will administer this new program.

3 What is it? Students who are American citizens or legal permanent residents are eligible for “work-study” financial aid that is supported by the U.S. Government. Eligibility is based on a student demonstrating financial need. Work-Study pays money, not to the students, but to the on-campus employers of the students. The program subsidizes the cost the hiring departments face when paying a student worker. Thus, it makes it less expensive for employers to hire a student, allowing more students to be hired for more jobs on-campus.

4 Here’s how it worked before ISEA. Until now, U.S. students with Work-Study were more attractive to on- campus employers because the employers only needed to pay about half the wage paid to the student worker. Who pays the hourly wages for on-campus employment?

5 As a result, U.S. students with work-study awards had more opportunities for interesting, relevant on-campus jobs. or

6 Here’s how it works with ISEA. International Students with ISEA will now be able to compete for better on-campus jobs because the cost to the employers will be the same as hiring U.S. students. Who pays the hourly wages for on-campus employment?
