Work Study Application

Kerala Ayurveda Academy is one of the largest Ayurvedic communities in the U.S. and a growing institution. We designed the Work Study program as a special opportunity for students to receive a tuition discount while immersing themselves in the educational field of Ayurveda. We crafted this program to allow maximum qualifying potential for candidates, as well as maximum flexibility, so students can find the time to complete their Work Study assignment at a reasonable pace during their academic program.



Work Study assignments are available for students in all locations. The location of the work performed varies amongst assignments: some require on-site attendance, while others can be completed entirely remotely. Priority assignments may be awarded to students in Milpitas, CA, Los Angeles, CA, Seattle, WA and Boston, MA.
