What is Federal Work Study?
Federal Work-Study is a federally funded program that enables students to earn money for college costs through part-time, academic or career oriented employment while providing essential services to the college and the community. The Federal Work-Study program allows students with financial need to help meet their educational expenses without incurring a lot of debt and is intended to provide worthwhile job opportunities for qualified students. In addition, a student's income earned from your Work-Study job will not be included in calculating your student contribution which may improve the amount and types of aid you are considered for when filing a financial aid application in future periods.

Getting Work Study at EVC
There is a limited number of work study positions available at our school. We have a lot of interested students, but not enough funding to allow every student to participate in the program. If your financial aid file is complete by the priority deadline of July 31, 2014 and you marked that you are interested in FWS on your FAFSA then you will be invited to attend the FWS Orientation. Students who attend the orientation will be eligible to apply for one of the posted FWS jobs. You must have a Certificate of Participation in order to apply for one of the posted jobs.
There will be several FWS Orientation sessions before and during the Fall semester. Students who are invited to attend the FWS Orientation will be contacted by e-mail with the scheduled dates. Upon completion of the orientation, students will be given a Certificate of Participation. This certificate serves as proof of FWS eligibility and allows students to apply for FWS jobs.
