Federal Work Study

Federal Work-Study (FWS) provides you an opportunity to work and earn income for your college education while you are in school. FWS is a federal financial aid program based on need determined from information you provide on the FAFSA. Many departments prefer to hire work-study students since the employee's wage is drawn from federal funds.
