Many of our students work while going to school to help pay for tuition, books and school supplies and help reduce the amount of student loans. Federal Work-Study (FWS) program provides part-time employment opportunities to students with financial need. Prior work experience is not required to secure an FWS position.

The FWS program encourages community service work and valuable work experience that are related to the recipient’s course of study. Placement for FWS positions is limited and acceptance cannot be guaranteed. Students are advised to search for FWS jobs as early as possible before the start of each semester or quarter. FWS student-employees are subject to the same work ethic and policies that apply to all employees of Swedish Institute.

Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for an FWS program, a student must:

  • Be enrolled in at least a half-time schedule
  • Have a minimum 2.5 GPA at Swedish Institute
  • Have successfully completed their first semester or quarter at Swedish Institute

If you are accepted to the FWS program, the amount you will earn will be listed on your award notification letter.
