Federal Work-Study Program

Federal Work Study (FWS) is a federally funded program administered by the Student Employment Office. The program promotes employment to help students meet educational expenses. A student must be approved for financial aid and have a demonstrated financial need to qualify for FWS. FWS eligible students can either work on campus, or off campus in a non-profit organization. Federal work study students are always given first priority for on campus recruitment.

Students who received work-study as part of their financial aid package will receive an e-mail in mid-August from our office that contains information about the work-study program. Work-Study and non-work-study jobs will be posted to our website in mid-August.

America Reads & America Counts Tutoring Program

The America Reads and America Counts programs are also part of the FWS program. These programs provide reading and math tutors to elementary aged children and families in the Greenville area. Students interested in America Reads and/or America Counts should contact the Student Employment Office.
