The Federal Work Study (FWS) Program is a federally funded need-based financial aid program in which eligible students work part-time jobs on-campus, off-campus, and in community service opportunities to help pay for educational expenses.
FWS is an award that students earn through work, with earnings based on an hourly rate for actual hours worked. It is not a loan that must be repaid. FWS funds and positions are limited and not all qualified students will receive a job.
If you are eligible for FWS and hired by a department, the FWS award will be posted on your financial aid award. You can view it through Self Service.
