What is Federal Work-Study?
Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a form of financial aid provided to students who demonstrate financial need. The program is designed to provide part-time employment for students who have established eligibility. FWS is employment financed with federal funds. Students receive a monthly paycheck for hours worked (the hourly rate currently ranges from $15.50 - $16.00/hour).
- The total a student may earn depends on the student’s unmet financial need and the amount of the FWS award the student is offered, which is determined by the Financial Aid Office.
- FWS jobs on-campus allow students to work in-between their classes, and offer excellent opportunities for work experiences, sometimes in the student’s academic field.
- There are also positions designed to assist students in providing service to the community which may be located off campus. To find out about FWS positions available, contact the financial aid office or review our list of currently open positions (See link above).
- Positions are filled on a first-come-first served basis, and usually require an interview to be hired.
- Students should be prepared to submit a resume or list of work experience and available hours when applying. Federal Work-study positions are considered as part of the student’s financial aid award.
