Federal Work Study (FWS)

This program provides part-time jobs on-campus for students with financial need as established by the FAFSA. Students are paid the current federal minimum wage, from $1,015 to $2,030 annually. The maximum amount a student may earn depends on financial need and the amount of funding the college has for the program. Eligibility does not guarantee employment but does give students the opportunity to apply for available FWS positions.
