The Federal Work Study Program is a form of
financial assistance available to qualifying students. Students
are provided the opportunity to meet their educational costs
through part-time employment. To determine Federal Work Study
eligibility, students should contact their financial aid counselor
in the Office of Financial Aid Services.
The Federal Government establishes eligibility
criteria and allocates an annual grant which is used to fund
the student's earnings. The employing department within the
Medical University of South Carolina does not contribute to
the student's earnings, except in cases where the student's
eligibility is exceeded. Because of this unique funding arrangement,
the program is governed by policies and procedures representative
of both funding agencies.
This handbook provides you with the policies
and procedures of the Federal Work Study Program and addresses
frequently asked questions concerning Federal Work Study.
The information contained in this publication is in effect
at the time of publication. However, future changes in policies
may become necessary. When such changes occur, all active
student FWS employees will be notified in writing.
