Federal Work Study Program - How to Apply

Printer-friendly version

The Federal Work-Study Program provides employment opportunities, either on-campus or with eligible off-campus employers. Employment in community service positions is encouraged. Eligibility for these programs is based solely on financial need and the availability of positions. If you have been offered assistance through the Federal Work-Study Program, the Financial Aid Office will provide information on available on-campus positions and in some cases, off-campus positions. Once hired, you must complete an IRS W–4 Form and an I-9 Employment Eligibility Form for your employer for payroll and tax purposes. The average time commitment is from six to eight hours each week. Awards are usually $1,500 per year.
