About the Federal Work-Study Program
Federal Work Study (FWS) consists of student employment opportunities on the campus of WSSU, and in the Winston-Salem community. Work Study at WSSU is a form of financial aid where funding availability and FAFSA eligibility determines the recipients. Federal Work-Study provides part-time jobs for undergraduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the recipient's course of study. The FAFSA serves as the application. Student recipients are compensated once per month at a rate determined by the Financial Aid Office each year.
All Federal Work Study recipients are notified of their award through their Financial Aid Award Offer Letter. Additional information will be provided regarding jobs available and required employment paperwork to be completed prior to beginning work.
