A variety of resources are available to students at Lake Land College that can help with study habits, career readiness and paying educational expenses.

Three different programs are in place: The Cooperative Work Study Program, The Federal Work Study Program and The Work and Learn Program.

Each one has different stipulations and benefits but helps eligible students.

-- The CWSP allows employers to be reimbursed for 50 percent of the student internship wages. Students must also meet the college’s requirements to be considered for the CWSP.

For more information about the CWSP, contact: Tina Moore, Director of Career Services tmoore@lakeland.cc.il.us; or at 217-234-5346.

-- The FWSP is administered through the college’s Financial Aid Office and is need-based, for qualifying students who have filled out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid form. Students are matched with work-study positions on campus according to their skills and when their application was received.

For more information about the Federal Work Study Program, contact Financial Aid at: financialaid@lakelandcollege.edu; or 217-235-5231.

-- The Work and Learn Program is in its pilot year and provides students on-campus work experience. It is geared for adults who are underemployed or unemployed.

The student is responsible for all fees but may be covered by financial aid. The work experience is designed to provide transferrable skills for employment.

Students interested in the Work and Learn Program should apply through the LLC Foundation Office.

For more information about this program, contact Nikki Lamb in Counseling Services at 217-234-5232; or nlamb@lakeland.cc.il.us.
