The UIW Federal Work Study (FWS) Program provides part-time employment opportunities to undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help supplement the costs of a postsecondary education. It also encourages students receiving FWS assistance to participate in community service activities and develop real world employment experience.

How to Apply:

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

"Work study is beneficial because future employers ask about my duties in the Grants/Accounting Office and it gives me a competitive edge against other candidates. Even though I receive VA education benefits, I am still able to do work study to gain experience and a little extra income." -Kyle M. (Grants/Accounting)
