Overview

Work-Study is a program that allows you to have a job on campus (or in some instances off campus) to earn a portion of financial aid. Awards range up to $2,000 per year ($1,000 per semester), and the awards are paid monthly by check based on how many hours you worked. You may not exceed 20 hours per week.
