Federal Work Study
The purpose of the Federal Work-Study (FWS) program is to help students with their financial need by providing them with a part-time job. Not every student will qualify, but those who do will be placed in various on and off campus positions to help offset a portion of their educational expenses. Positions available through the FWS Program may involve working in a private or non-profit organization. Work-study students should approach their assignment with a sense of responsibility that would be expected in any job. The maximum hours are 20 hours per week, while school is in session unless approved by the Financial Aid Office.
Students interested in work-study can email email@example.com for available positions.
