Federal Work Study Program

The Federal Work Study (FWS) Program is a federally funded need-based financial aid program in which eligible undergraduate and graduate students work part-time jobs on-campus, off-campus, and in community service opportunities allowing students to earn money to help pay education expenses.

Work Study is an award that students earn through work. It is not a loan that must be repaid. Funds and positions are limited and not all qualified students will receive a job.

Federal Work Study Awards

If you are eligible for Federal Work Study and hired by a department, the FWS award will be posted on your financial aid award. You can view it through your Financial Aid Self Service.

Payment

Payment through Federal Work Study earnings are based on an hourly rate for actual hours worked. Students are not paid for lunch, breaks or holidays.
