Overview of work-study
The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program, which is through the U.S. Department of Education, provides funds for students with financial need, allowing IUPUI students to earn money to help offset the costs of higher education. Approximately 3,000 IUPUI students are offered work-study awards each academic year as part of their financial aid packages. Students can then secure a part-time job on campus or in approved community work-study agencies to work and to receive a biweekly paycheck.
Our office is happy to provide support and assistance as you navigate the hiring process for work study-students. If you have questions regarding work study, please feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org.
