Federal Work Study

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a program which provides part-time employment opportunities to eligible students to help meet the costs of post-secondary education. Based on the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), eligible students are awarded an allotment which may be earned through part-time employment in FWS approved positions either on or off campus. The program is designed to provide students with an opportunity for employment arranged around class schedules. Students must be enrolled at least half-time (six credit hours per semester) to be eligible for this program. 

***Virginia International University cannot offer the Federal Work Study program to students until the 2017-2018 award year which starts July 1, 2017. If you are interested at that time, please indicate on your 2017-2018 FAFSA that you are interested in Federal Work Study. The 2017-2018 FAFSA will be available October of 2016.
