What is Work Study?

The Federal Work-Study Program was established by Congress as part of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964. Its purpose is the promotion of part-time employment for students with financial need in order to achieve three main goals:

  1. To assist students in earning money to meet their educational costs
  2. To provide work experience related to the student's chosen academic major or career field
  3. To improve relations between the University and the community.


Work-Study is a federally-subsidized program and wage costs are shared by the federal government and the individual employers.

The current wage cost ratio for on-campus employers is 30%-70%.

  • On-campus employer pays 30% of each student's wage
  • The Federal Government pays 70%.
