Can you describe the College Work-Study program?

The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program is a government subsidized student employment program designed to assist students in financing their post-secondary education. In order to be eligible for Work-Study, students must document financial need every year by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Undergraduate and graduate students are eligible.

Note: The only way for students accepting their Work-Study (WS) award to receive the award amount is to get a job, work 12-20 hours per week, and earn it! Students are strongly encouraged to begin the job search early. Popular Work-Study positions such as Reading and Math Tutors are highly sought after and tend to be filled quickly.
