The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) funds part-time employment for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay postsecondary education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student’s course of study. The total award depends on when the student applies, the level of need, and the funding level of the school.
In order to qualify for this benefit program, you must be a student pursuing a postsecondary educational degree or certificate. Hourly wages must not be less than the federal minimum wage. Students may be employed by: the institution itself; a federal, state, or local public agency; a private nonprofit organization; or a private for-profit organization.
To determine whether you are eligible to receive assistance through this program, you must first complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Schools use the information from the FAFSA to determine your actual financial aid package. Complete the form online at http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. Your school will inform you how much money you may be eligible for that academic year.
