Federal Work Study (FWS)

What is Federal Work-Study (FWS)?

The FWS program, administered by our office, allows eligible undergraduate students who show financial need to earn a portion of their educational expenses through meaningful employment. 

FWS is awarded for fall and spring semesters only. SWS (Summer Work Study) is a separate program and is awarded during the spring semester.

It is important to remember that work-study is NOT a job in which you are paid to study. Work-study is not a cash award. You must work for your earnings.
