Federal Work Study


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.

If eligible, you will be contacted during the summer regarding how to obtain a FWS position on campus. Meredith College cannot currently guarantee a campus job to all students. FWS jobs are listed on the Federal Work Study tab on Blackboard.  If eligible, you will be automatically enrolled in this course.  If you have questions or difficulties with navigating the Blackboard course, please contact our office directly.  

Please note that FWS will not be paid to your student account, and you should not include this funding when determining the amount that you will owe to the college.
