Could you speak to the financial aid office?

Did you apply for this job or did they seek you out?

If you volunteered this term, would they consider paying you out of lab monies after that?  (They may not have sufficient lab funding to pay you.)  If you can afford it, I’d do it for the resume experience + potential references.  (I’m currently volunteering 15 hours a week for the same thing, and I’m well out of school.)

They usually only offer workstudy to those who are severely in need. You could try speaking to Financial Aid and/or whoever offered you the position and see if there’s anyway you could recieve compensation. I agree that you should take the position regardless, not many college students have solid work experience on a resume and it could help you quite a bit down the road.
