Federal Work Study (FWS)

Federal Work Study (FWS) (may not be available to students enrolled in 100% online degree programs) FWS is a financial aid program designed to assist students in meeting the cost of their education by working part-time while attending school. Positions may either be on-campus, off-campus, or community service related. A candidate must demonstrate financial need to be awarded FWS. The number of positions available through the FWS program may be limited depending upon the institution’s annual funding allocation from the federal government.
