Work Study

Federal Work Study (FWS) is a federally funded aid program designed to provide part-time employment for eligible students. Students who demonstrate financial need based on their Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and complete the work study application, are awarded FWS funds on a first-come, first-serve basis until funds are exhausted. If financial aid is awarded too late in the year, students may not receive a FWS award due to lack of funding regardless of whether they had a FWS award in the past. Contact the Financial Aid Office to be placed on the FWS waiting list.

Work study pays $15 per hour. Students can work on campus or at a non-profit agency in their community. Please complete the application here 2022-2023 Work Study Application. Contact the Financial Aid office with questions at 715-365-4908.
