On and Off-Campus Employment Opportunities

On-Campus Federal Work Study Program (FWS): Federal Work-Study (FWS) employment is a need-based assistance program that allows students to earn part of their educational expenses through part-time employment while attending school. If you are eligible for this program, the award amount shown on your award letter is the maximum that you may earn through this program. The funds must be earned in order to be dispersed.  Students who are Federal Work Study eligible are automatically enrolled in the Blackboard course at the beginning of each Semester provided the Office of Financial Assistance has received their accepted and signed annual statement of award. This course is listed in MyMeredith, Clubs and Committees, RSC-FA1: Student Employment-On Campus.  Click “Current Openings” to browse employment opportunities.  Please check current openings periodically as new opportunities become available.
