Federal Work-Study Program
The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) allows qualified students to fund a portion of their educational expenses through part-time employment on campus.
Work-Study awards are not deducted from your university bill. Most students use their earnings for personal expenses or purchasing textbooks.
- How do I apply? Students who complete the application process for need-based aid are evaluated for eligibility. No additional application is required.
- How do I find a job? Check out the latest openings.
- How much will I earn? Students are paid $7.25 per hour for starting positions. The maximum first-year, work-study award is $2,450 or the equivalent of 12 hours of work per week during the 30-week academic year.
"Cash" or Campus Employment
Students who do not qualify for FWS may work on campus in a "cash" or campus employment position. Many offices across campus hire students in these positions.
Susquehanna University participates in a federal initiative called America Reads. Through this program, students paid through the Work-Study Program tutor children in a local elementary school. If you would like to know more about the details of the program, please call Student Financial Services.
