The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) is part of the Title IV Federal Grant program for students in need of financial aid. You must submit a FAFSA to be eligible. If you do not qualify for a Pell Grant, you may still be eligible for the work-study program. If you are not eligible for a Pell Grant, you still must provide all documents required, i.e., transcripts, placement tests or other verification documents requested by the government.
Job descriptions for each FWS position are available in the FWS Coordinator’s office. These job descriptions outline the job’s duties and responsibilities. A work-study job assignment should be treated like any other part-time job you may apply for. Supervisors look for work-study students who are dependable and responsible.
