Work Program Funding

The Work Program Office offers financial support for student work crew members and supervisors to participate in professional development opportunities. These opportunities range from taking continuing education classes to presenting at national conferences, bringing experts to campus and participating in skill enhancing workshops.

Work Program Funding can be used to cover registration, transportation, food and lodging for these professional development opportunities.

Successful applicants must articulate how the event will help integrate the work of their work with the rest of their Triad experience. In support of institutional priorities, precedence is given to requests that support the development of diversity at Warren Wilson College.
