Summer

Summer 2019: May 20, 2019 through August 30, 2019

Summer employment for Williams students is different from academic year student employment in a few ways, most notably the pay schedule and tax implications. 

Williams has a large Summer Research Program (SRP) hiring some 200+ students to work on campus. Additionally, each summer the College has a limited number of other on-campus summer jobs. Employment preference is given to enrolled Williams students, defined as entering first-years and rising sophomores, juniors and seniors.  Within that group, hiring priority is given to those on Williams-based financial aid.
