Student employment opportunities

Whether as a frontline caller or as a behind-the-scenes office assistant, you’ll gain valuable career experience as a student employee. You’ll discover how philanthropy powers K-State — and how it shapes your own student experience.

A great place to work

While working at the KSU Foundation, you’ll have access to career-boosting assets — like resume reviews, mock interviews, student performance reviews, team summits and employee engagement activities. We also offer a free on-site fitness center with 24/7 access.

Join a great team

Put your talents to use as an employee of the KSU Foundation. Whether writing stories for the website, organizing special events or tracking investment performance, you’ll be focused on the greater good.

And you’ll be working for a top organization. The KSU Foundation became the nation’s only certified institutionally related foundation in 2019 — and one of only seven Great Place to Work-certified organizations in Kansas. In the nonprofit space, the KSU Foundation joins the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and the Kessler Foundation in this distinction.

Become a student gift officer
With its flexible work schedule, this is one of the most popular student positions at the KSU Foundation.

As part of our Student Development Program, student gift officers in our call center contact donors and potential donors to acquire gifts and pledges to K-State. If you enjoy speaking with others — and having meaningful conversations — this a great way to make an impact. 

Apply for other positions
We’ve got students working in human resources, accounting, marketing communications and other units all across the organization. Check our job listings to see the full range.

About our workplace culture
We create an environment that is inclusive. We draw strength from the diversity of our team and value the unique experiences each person adds to our workplace.
