Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally funded campus-based program. FWS allows students to earn money on campus or at a public or private nonprofit organization. The funds are to help pay for your educational expenses. In addition, this federal program can help students gain valuable work experience.
Students must file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as part of the application process for FWS assistance. The FAFSA is on the Web at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov. If you are not awarded FWS and wish to be on the Waitlist (pending the availability of additional funding), please email us your full name, email, and EMPL ID.
Students may be employed by:
- The institution itself.
- A national, state, or local public agency.
- A private nonprofit organization.
- A private for-profit organization.
