Federal Work-Study Applications Open for Summer 2021; Watch the Informational Video

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.
