Join the Team
The Military and Veterans’ Resource Center (MAVRC) offers employment opportunities for students to assist the MAVRC in supporting Georgetown’s military-connected students. Students who work in the MAVRC will have the opportunity to develop a deep understanding of the issues facing military-connected students as they navigate higher education. Additionally, all MAVRC student workers will have the opportunity to develop software skills, receive one-on-one mentorship, and have first-hand access to development opportunities secured through the MAVRC.
There are three major ways to work in the center:
- VA Work-Study
- Georgetown-funded positions
- Capstones and program-required internships
Regardless of position type, work hours will generally coincide with the Military and Veterans’ Resource Center’s hours of operation from 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. but will be flexible to accommodate the student’s class and office hours schedule. The Director will strive to accommodate hybrid work models as appropriate and will work to align students’ job duties with their professional interests where possible.
The Work-Study Allowance Program offers an additional non-taxable allowance to students in return for performing VA-related activities. It serves as a supplemental VA education benefit and often provides the additional funding that allows a student to pursue and accomplish educational goals. Work-Study students earn an hourly wage equal to the federal minimum or the state minimum wage, whichever is greater. Students typically work up to 25 hours per week. The earnings received under VA work-study are not considered income and should not be mentioned as such.
To qualify, a student must be enrolled in and pursuing an approved college degree, vocational or professional program of education at a rate of 3/4 time or greater and be receiving benefits under one of the following education programs:
- Chapter 30: The Montgomery GI Bill
- Chapter 31: Vocational Rehabilitation
- Chapter 32: The Post-Vietnam Era Veterans’ Educational Assistance Program
- Chapter 33: Post 9/11 GI Bill (Including Fry and Edith Rogers STEM Scholarships)
- Chapter 35: Dependent’s Educational Assistance Program
- Chapter 1606: The Montgomery GI Bill – Selected Reserve
Eligible students can apply at any time for the positions listed below; however, availability may be limited depending on when students apply.

The MAVRC maintains a personnel budget to employ Georgetown students to assist the MAVRC in supporting military-connected students. Any student can fill a Georgetown-funded position, and the MAVRC usually employs 1-2 GU-funded students per semester. The MAVRC will typically distribute GU-funded position announcements via the MAVRC newsletter on Campus Groups.

Capstones and Internships
Several Georgetown graduate programs have capstone or internship requirements. Depending on the program, Georgetown students may be able to work in the MAVRC to meet their program’s requirements. In these instances, the MAVRC Director works with the student and program staff if necessary to create a position that is mutually beneficial for the student and the center.
