Federal Work Study
The federal Work-Study program provides jobs for students who need financial aid and who must earn a part of their educational expenses. The amount of the award depends on need and the amount of funds available. Tuition and fees cannot be deducted from a federal Work-Study award. Students normally work 10 to 15 hours per week.
To apply for federal Work-Study, a student must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, www.fafsa.ed.gov, and complete the Federal Work-Study Application Process.
