Federal Work Study

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​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.

Benefits of Student Employment

Studies show that compared to students who do not work, students who work a modest number of hours per week will, on average:

  • have higher grade point averages
  • graduate at a faster rate
  • be less likely to drop out
  • have more job skills to include on their resumes

The Federal Work-Study Program provides the additional benefits of:

  • Working students become better organized and manage their time better.
  • Employment exposes students to more mentor-type relationships and increases interaction with "real world" people.
  • Become involved in the campus community both as a professional and as a student.
  • Motivation to maintain the necessary academic standings to continue to work.

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 31st 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.​

Federal Work Study orientation

​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.


You must have a Certificate of Completion in order to apply for one of the posted jobs.
