Promoting Part-Time Employment
The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program is designed to promote part-time employment for students who qualify for help in financing their education. The Federal Work-Study Office provides a wide range of student opportunities while supporting departmental needs within the University and community.
The Federal Work-Study program is partially funded by the U.S. federal government and therefore subject to strict regulations and an annual audit. We rely on each department to complete its portion of the process within the specified time frames to ensure payment is made to all students on time.
