Federal Work Study Resources

FWS is a financial aid program that allows students to work on-campus or with approved off-campus community service organizations in order to earn money to help pay for educational expenses and gain work experience.  A portion of your earnings is paid for by federal funding that is awarded to Georgetown each year. The FWS Program was created to make it easier for eligible students to find a part-time job.

You are automatically considered for FWS when you complete the FAFSA and, if eligible, it will be included in your financial aid award. If you have planned to meet your expenses in other ways, you may choose to reject your FWS award or earn less than the amount offered to you. 

Notice: Students are responsible for securing a Federal Work Study based position. The SEO can advise and direct students to departments that are Federal Work Study eligible, but does not place students into Federal Work Study positions.
