Federal Work-Study Applications Open for Fall 2021
Federal Work Study (FWS) is a need-based financial aid program established by the federal government. The FWS program provides employment opportunities for eligible students, allowing them to earn, rather than borrow, a portion of their educational costs. Chicago-Kent students who are FWS eligible may receive payment for their work at government and public interest organizations in the Chicago area through FWS funds. However, the number of positions will be limited due to FWS budgetary limitations, and there are other restrictions and limitations as to where students can be funded to work.
Applications for a Fall semester start on the first day of classes, August 23rd are due by Wednesday, August 11th. Applications accepted on a rolling basis thereafter.
