The Federal Work-Study Program provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the students' course of study.

The initial offered amount can be up to $4500 for the academic year. Students may request additional funding for the term, depending on unmet need and fund availability.
