Financial Aid and Scholarships

Federal Work Study

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a type of financial aid that allows students to earn money through part-time employment. The Work-Study Program encourages students to seek part-time employment while they are enrolled in school so they have a greater opportunity to earn rather than borrow money to pay for educational expenses. The program provides students access to work with the schedule flexibility they need so they can have a healthy balance between school commitments and their work obligations.

The program encourages community service work and work related to the student's course of study.

Federal Work Study contributes to Academic Success: Research has shown that Work Study students connect with the campus community, learn about resources available to students, and establish stronger relationships with faculty and staff. This correlates with the fact that students with Work Study jobs are more likely to stay in school, perform better academically, and graduate!
