Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program is a need-based financial aid program. It provides funds that students earn through part-time employment to help pay the costs of their educational expenses.

Although a FWS award will appear on your award letter, funds must be earned. Funds earned are paid directly to you, monthly, and are not credited to your student account.
