Federal Work-Study Program

This is a federally supported program offering you an opportunity to earn monthly financial assistance through work. You are responsible for applying your earnings to your college expenses.

Awarding Process

You must demonstrate need to obtain funds through this program. You must first complete the “Free Application for Federal Student Aid” for determination of the Expected Family Contribution. If eligible for the program, you must submit an application for FWS employment and a resumé so that the Director of Financial Assistance/ Financial Aid Officer can match your abilities and interests with student job opportunities existing on campus. Funds are awarded until the College’s federal authorization is exhausted.


Part-time and full-time dependent or independent undergraduate students are eligible. However, the award is limited to U.S. citizens and permanent residents.

Expected Amount

The wage rate for this program is consistent with the federal minimum wage. The average award is 15 hours per week.


Priority deadline for the Federal Work-Study Program is May 1 for the upcoming academic year. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible since funds are limited.
