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.
A work study award does not guarantee job placement. It is the student's responsibility to apply for a position through Cardinal Talent. The student must apply and secure a work study contract before they can utilize their FWS award.
Below are forms and information for students to utilize in connection with the UIW Federal Work Study program. Forms can be accessed using Adobe Acrobat Reader 4.0 or later. For questions, please contact the Office of Financial Assistance.
Please be advised that all students planning to participate in FWS Program must submit a FAFSA, have a completed financial aid file, and demonstrate financial need before applying for a position and signing a work-study contract.
