The Federal Work-Study Program is funded by the Department of Education and is a need-based student employment program. The program is designed to assist students with the cost of attending college while giving them valuable employment skills and training.  Federal Work-Study is a part of the Title IV Program (student financial aid) and is governed by both federal regulations and school policy.  To qualify for a Federal Work-Study grant, students are required to file a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ each academic year. Remember to apply early, federal work-study funds are limited.


Our intent is to place the student in a position that relates to his program of study when assigning jobs.  If this is not possible, we try and match required skills listed on the job description submitted by prospective FWS supervisors.  It is our hope that all eligible students are able to obtain work-study jobs and once employed, can receive or enhance skills that will assist them in competing in the job market upon completion of their studies at Midlands Technical College.  Recipients of a Federal Work-Study award and FWS supervisors are required to complete an on-line orientation.  After completing the on-line orientation and signing affidavit, students must complete and print an employment packet. 


A percentage of work-study allocations must be reported to the Department of Education as community service. Community Service designees include family literacy agencies and local governmental and community based organizations.  These agencies must provide assistance to the community as a whole, not a select group.  Students will not be paid for work performed at agencies not approved by the FWS staff


The Federal Work Study Program at Midlands Technical College, per federal regulations, employs reading and math tutors each year.  When placing reading tutors, priority is given to schools participating in a reading reform project.  Tutors, both reading and math, can be assigned to preschool facilities or elementary schools.  These facilities must also support the community as a whole.




FWS awards are made for the full academic year based on eligibility criteria set by the Department of Education.  The individual awards may be adjusted to reflect receipt of additional awards.  Interested students who were not awarded should contact the Student Financial Services Office to ascertain eligibility and to be placed on the FWS wait list.
