Federal Work-Study Program (FWS)

The Federal Work-Study program provides jobs for undergraduate students and enables them to earn money toward their college expenses by working on- or off-campus. Students are paid bi-weekly at the rate of pay that is based on the federal or state minimum wage; whichever is more. Eligible students must have a financial need as determined by their FAFSA results. A separate FWS request must be completed and submitted to the institution’s work-study coordinator.
