Work-Study Appointment Requests for 2021-2022 Academic Year

Program Description

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally-funded, need-based employment program offered during the fall and spring semesters. Eligible undergraduate students may earn FWS funds by working part-time with approved FWS employers. Students are offered FWS based on financial need, availability of FWS funds, and job availability. Employing departments, and the state and federal governments share in the payment of student wages. The Federal Work-Study Program provides valuable experience to students both inside and outside of their field of study. Students are encouraged to work part-time while in school to not only gain work experience but to help contribute to the cost of their education and reduce their loan indebtedness.
