Federal Work Study (FWS)
The Federal Work-Study program provides students with the opportunity to work part-time and earn a paycheck. Federal Work-Study is awarded as part of the student’s financial aid package — if the student was awarded Federal Work-Study funds, they would be able to view it on their MaineStreet account under “View Financial Aid.” The total amount of Federal Work-Study awarded is what the student is eligible to earn for the academic year and is based on information provided on the FAFSA.
The first step to earning Federal Work-Study funds is to find a job. Students can find employment using the online job search Careerlink.
