Work Study Program Consideration (Step 4 of 5)

Work-study programs are another form of need-based federal aid for students. Those students who demonstrate financial need may be assigned a part-time job on campus in order to earn money for school. Work-study students earn at least minimum wage and receive the pay directly from the federal government. Ask your school's financial aid office for more information. An additional bonus: If you qualify for a work-study program, you may request a job assignment that relates to your major.
