The Federal Workstudy Program (FWSP) offers on-campus employment to eligible students who meet a federal needs test as determined from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). You must be enrolled for a minimum of 6 hours per semester to engage in federal workstudy. The amount of hours you are allowed to work each week is determined by your eligibility on your FAFSA. You are encouraged to seek employment in community services, service to students with disabilities, and in activities in which they serve as mentors.
To apply for a job in this program, you must complete a FWSP Application once you accept your FWSP award on your myGate account. The application will show up as a red flag and is to be completed every academic year. Departments look at those application to find prospective student employees. The department will contact you if they are wanting you to work for them. Also, you may check the Career Services Website for student employment opportunities listed for each department.
