Work Study Program

The Federal Work Study (FWS) program based on financial need enables graduate students to defray a portion of their educational expenses with part-time work earnings. FWS jobs are available both on and off campus, and have the following in common:

  • You may work up to 19 hours per week to earn up to the full amount of your FWS award.
  • You will be paid twice monthly for the actual hours you worked.
  • The award amount indicated on your Award Letter is a maximum eligibility to earn, and FWS awards are not credited to your student account.
  • Receiving an FWS award is not a guarantee of employment.

More information about FWS jobs is available through the Human Resources Office.
