Please note, graduate students are not automatically awarded work-study funding. UNC currently offers the opportunity to participate in a limited, pilot, FWS program for a select number of graduate students.
To participate in the program, you must:
- Locate a UNC faculty/staff member willing to create a position before applying
- After having a supervisor and job secured, you must complete the trainings+quiz here and your supervisors must complete the required trainings+quiz here
- UNC faculty/staff member will need to complete the new supervisor request form here
- Lastly, you must complete the application form to be accepted to the pilot program here and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Usually supervisors post WS jobs in early June and students will start to apply in mid-July. Graduate students are only able to apply to federal work study positions currently and not Carolina work positions. It is up to the graduate student to locate a supervisor and position (graduate students will not have access to the undergraduate Jobx position listings).
