The Federal Work-Study Program is a federally-funded program that provides part-time employment opportunities in various offices on campus and in the community to undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need based on the results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students are paid at an hourly rate (typically minimum wage), and receive their paycheck monthly for hours worked in the previous month. Federal Work-Study funds will not be credited directly to a student’s Huntingdon College student account. Students interested are encouraged to complete a Federal Work Study Application.
Work-Study eligibility is determined each year as a result of early submission of the FAFSA and a student’s financial need. Funding levels and the number of positions are limited, therefore positions are not guaranteed to all eligible applicants or from one year to the next. Recipients must agree to work the hours required by these positions. The award amounts are typically made to allow you to work a maximum of 5 hours a week. Work schedules and positions are determined each semester, and are planned around the student’s class schedule. Priority consideration during the initial awarding period is given to day students who complete the FAFSA as soon as possible after October 1 and who indicate on the FAFSA an interest in completing work-study.
