Get Involved with Federal Work-Study

Federal Work-Study is a great way to earn extra funds while going to college. Jobs are granted on a first-come, first-serve basis. 

What is the Federal Work-Study Program? 

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally funded aid program designed to provide part-time employment for eligible students. You must demonstrate financial need to be awarded FWS funds on a first-come, first-serve basis until funds are exhausted. If financial aid is filed too late in the year, you may not receive a FWS award due to lack of funding regardless of whether you had a FWS award in the past. You may, however, contact Northwood Tech to be placed on the FWS waiting list.
