Default Are on campus part time jobs while on J1 research allowed?

With unpaid j1 research, it is a little too hard to sustain life. Is it okay to take part time on campus jobs allowed? Anyone with research volunteer position care to share their two cents on surviving through basic expenses?

With things like this, you are better off asking a solicitor or lawyer rather than trusting a reply on a forum. If found not complying with your visa restrictions, your chances of working in the U.S. in the future will be slim

Yes I'll make sure to do that.
But was hoping some one on the forum has first hand experience with that. After all its through the forum, I got to know about J1 research. I was wondering how researchers survived with personal funds for 6months or even an year. I read J1 student are allowed 20 hours of on campus jobs. Confused if this applied to self funded research scholars

Thank you for the input. Were you able to manage your stay without pay? I can manage about a 1000$ every month. Will that be enough to survive? Most J1 positions are from 6mo to 1 year and I'm hoping I can survive an year with under 10 lakh expense. Is that doable? It would be a great help to have any inputs.

I'm not sure how accurate this is, but I got to know people pf J1 during my interviews and they told me that there is now a rule that requires people on J1 research to be paid. You may have to find out more.

it depends on which city u are staying in...I lived in Boston and it was pretty expensive and was able to manage in 1000$, but again it depends on city and the location of ur research lab.

It was always supposed to be paid, but since we accept on our own that we want to volunteer, they dont pay us. Thats why J1 ppl get SSN and other but not a salary.

Thankyou very much for your inputs. Will defenitely hope to fit everything in.
One university i know which used to offer j1 earlier only offers them for paid positions now due to revised rules, Hope the volunteer options are available like before, research on b1 is a little too short term for pubs. Iam srsly concerned about new rules mandating a pay, if theres any, because most of times, there is scarcity of funded positions and it is not easy to find appropriate fellowships or fundings with relative inexperience in research.
