Federal Work-Study (FWS) is an employment program which allows students to earn a paycheck through a financial aid award paid by federal funds. Since it is federal money, students must receive the award from Financial Aid each academic year (Fall through Spring) to work, and they must be paid hourly (for actual hours worked). Students can spend their earned wages on anything and can only earn up to their award amount (earnings are not applied to tuition).
FWS awards are made by the Financial Aid Office to U.S. citizens and permanent residents who qualify based on their FAFSA, if you have questions about eligiblity reach out to Financial Aid, firstname.lastname@example.org. The program provides part-time employment opportunities in two areas, On-Campus & Community Service.
There are numerous on-campus work-study employment opportunities for eligible students. Students may apply for any job they are interested in, but they may only hold one job at a time. Participating students may only work up to 20 hours per week, and are not permitted to work during scheduled classes . All on-campus work-study employees begin at the minimum pay rate below when starting a new position:

The Community Service program provides off-campus, part-time employment to eligible students. These positions pay $14/hour and students may work up to 20 hours per week.
