Federal Work-Study / Community Service
The federal work-study program lets you work and earn money to help pay for educational expenses by providing part-time employment for eligible college students. Awards are need-based and are part of your financial aid package. The federal work-study program does not guarantee you a job, but it does give you an opportunity to earn an award. Work-study funds are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis to students who indicated they were interested on the FAFFSA application.
The work may be on-campus or off-campus. Off-campus jobs may be at a private nonprofit organization or a public agency where the work is in the public interest. Students are eligible to earn up to the amount awarded and are paid on a biweekly basis based on their number of hours worked.
Please note that since students must earn this money, the award cannot be used as credit against a student bill. if you are awarded work-study funds, you must accept the award online through your myVILLE Student Portal if you plan to utilize the award.
