Work-study gives you money for college with a part-time job on-campus or in the community.
Federal work-study (FWS) jobs provide valuable experience and allow students to gain workplace skills. Positions are available throughout the campus and are offered during the school year. Talk to your financial aid office about the FWS options available at your college.
You’ll earn at least the current federal minimum wage. However, you may make more depending on the type of work and the skills required for the position. The amount you earn can’t exceed your total Federal Work-Study award. When assigning work hours, your employer or your school’s financial aid office will consider your class schedule and academic progress.
