  • The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) subsidizes part-time employment opportunities for students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help cover their expenses while studying at a participating college or university. The money earned through FWS is paid directly to you as wages from part-time work in an approved FWS position. It is not applied directly to your balance.

    • To apply for an FWS award, you must file the FAFSA by the priority deadline of February 15 and indicate your interest in FWS on the FAFSA.
    • If you receive an FWS award, you must secure an FWS position before the fall deadline. If you do not obtain a position by the deadline, your award will be canceled. The deadline for obtaining an FWS position is typically the third week of October each year.
    • You can search for on-campus FWS jobs for the upcoming school year at careers.newschool.edu beginning in July.
    • While most Federal Work-Study positions are on-campus, you may also work at one of our off-campus partner organizations. For a list of our partner organizations, please see Federal Work-Study Off-Campus Employers.
    • If you would like to work at an off-campus site that is not listed as a partner organization, or if you have questions about your FWS position, please contact fws@newschool.edu for more information.
