2014-15 Academic Year Federal Work Study Funds Effective 8/17/14 thru 8/23/15

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally subsidized program established to promote part-time employment of financially eligible students.  The FWS program provides benefits to students and university offices. For those students with FWS awards hired by University units, the unit pays 25% of that student's gross earnings; the federal government pays 75%.  Funding provided by the federal government for on-campus student employment is an important ingredient to supplement our limited budgets.


Student Eligibility

The FWS Open Request period is August 1 – August 15, 2014. It is during this time that any student not awarded FWS may submit an online FWS Open Request form available at Awards are based on student eligibility and availability of funds.  Additional awarding may occur throughout the year based on FWS usage.  


Use of FWS Funds for FY 2015

FWS is awarded directly to students following FAS guidelines for awarding financial aid. FWS awards may be utilized by any on campus department that hires FWS student employees.   Departments are not limited on the number of FWS authorized students they can hire.  Students may work up to thirty (30) hours per week during the academic year when school is in session; forty (40) hours per week otherwise.  All work hours should be paid from FWS funds as long as the student does not exceed their FWS award.
