The Federal Work Study Program provides funds that are earned through part-time employment to assist students in financing the costs of postsecondary education. Students can work up to 20 hours per week (based on their unmet need and budget) both on-campus and off-campus.

Off-campus employment consists of tutoring in reading and math at local elementary schools, as well as various community service positions.
