The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program is a federally subsidized employment program, which provides part-time work opportunities for students. This program provides a valuable opportunity for students to offset their education costs and help keep their loan indebtedness to a minimum. As a local nonprofit organization, through this program, you can hire students to fill a variety of positions in your organization.
Salaries are based on the type of work and qualifications required. As the employer, you are only responsible for 50% of the student's gross wages while the other 50% are paid by the federal government. Employers initially pay the entire salary, but then are reimbursed by the university.
