Work-Study is a federally-subsidized hourly wage job program. For example, if a department pays you $10/hr., it costs their budget a net of $5/hr. There are three advantages for the Work-Study student:
- The subsidy makes you a highly sought-after employee.
- Work-Study earnings do not count against your aid eligibility when you fill out next year's FAFSA.
- Work-Study gives you the opportunity to earn part of your college costs rather than increase your loans. The less debt you graduate with, the more choices you'll have in life.
