The UIW Federal Work-study (FWS) Program provides part-time employment for students who demonstrate financial need and who seek additional assistance in subsidizing their education. Work-study positions at UIW employ students an average of 12-15 hours (but no more than 20) per week; and hourly pay rates start at $7.25 per hour (the federal minimum wage), though some positions on campus pay more.

A work-study award does not guarantee job placement. It is the student's responsibility to contact individual departments regarding job openings. The student must interview and secure a contract with a department before they can utilize their FWS award.
