Federal Work-Study

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally funded program that provides employment opportunities to students with financial need. Work experience is not required to secure a FWS position.

Students receive their FWS award by working part-time. The amount a student may earn will be listed on the student's award notification letter. The program encourages community service work and work related to the recipient's course of study. Stuents are encouraged to work with a Family Literacy Organization.

An offer of a FWS award does not guarantee placement in an actual position. Placement for FWS positions is limited and cannot be guaranteed; students are encouraged to search for FWS jobs as early as possible at the start of each semester or quarter.

FWS student-employees are subject to the same work ethic and policies that apply to regular employees of the Swedish Institute.

Award Policy:

To be eligible students must be enrolled at least half time, have a minimum GPA of 3.0, and successfully have completed their first semester or quarter at the Swedish Institute.
