Overview.

 

Federal Work-Study (FWS) 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.
