Funded primarily by the Federal Government, Federal Work-Study Programs allow eligible students to earn part of their financial aid through employment on campus or in community service agencies. Students approved for Federal Work-Study Programs may select from a variety of jobs that suit their interests, skills, and career plans.
Students who receive Federal Work-Study as a part of their financial aid award will be sent instructions for viewing job descriptions on the Internet during the summer before they arrive on campus. Students may begin contacting the hiring department and scheduling interviews during the first week of classes for positions that interest them.
The Student Guide from the U.S. Department of Education provides some general questions and answers to Federal Work-Study concerns.
