What is Federal Work-Study (FWS)?

The Federal Work-Study (FWS) program helps students earn money for educational expenses while providing work experience. The Federal Work-Study Program motivates students to do work that serves the local community that is part of their field of study.

Students who are eligible for Federal Work-Study can work part-time while enrolled in school, whether they are full-time or part-time students.

Most schools participating in the FWS program have both off-campus and on-campus jobs. On-campus jobs are generally working for the school itself. Off-campus work will be in your field of study, usually a non-profit organization that benefits the local Sacramento community.

Contact the Financial Aid department at MTI College to find out more about Federal Work-Study opportunities.

Eligibility

To be eligible for Federal Work-Study, the student must:

  • Have completed the FAFSA.

  • Be enrolled at least half-time in a degree or certificate program.
