What is Federal Work Study?
The Federal Work Study (FWS) Program provides part-time employment to students attending institutions of higher education who demonstrate a financial need to help meet their post-secondary education costs and encourages students receiving FWS assistance to participate in community service activities.
The Work Study Program is designed to prepare students for the workforce, encourage responsibility, provide a comprehensive view of a strong work ethic, and provide valuable work experience within a student’s field of study. In turn, the student contributes to the successful operation of the College and/or local community service agencies.
Who is eligible for Federal Work Study?
To determine eligibility, the student must submit a FAFSA, demonstrate financial need, maintain satisfactory academic progress and be enrolled and maintain at least half-time enrollment each semester of each academic school year. Eligibility will be determined based on FAFSA results and submission of the work study application.
For additional information regarding FWS, please contact the Financial Aid office. Our office is located in A Building, room 100.
