The Federal Work-Study Program provides students with the opportunity to work part-time and earn a bi-weekly paycheck. Funds earned can be used to help pay education expenses. Work-study funds are not applied directly to the student’s bill.
- To qualify, students must file the FAFSA (and answer YES to the Federal Work-Study question on the FAFSA) and meet certain need-based criteria
- The total amount of work-study awarded is what the student is eligible to earn for the academic year. Work-study award amounts are listed as part of the financial aid award in MaineStreet.
