The Federal Work Study Program (FWS) Experimental Program, provides funds that are earned through part-time employment to assist students in financing the costs of postsecondary education. The Federal Work Study Experimental Program provides students the opportunity to engage in paid, off-campus work-study experiences that are integrated with their program of study and introduces students to future potential employers. Students interested in participating in the program should work with their advisor/instructor to discuss possible positions before completing the online application.
