What is Federal Work-Study?
- A Federal Work-Study (FWS) award on your Financial Aid Offer letter is an offer to get a part-time job through the Work-Study program. An average award of $1728 would allow a student to work 14 hours per week at a rate of $7.50 for the semester.
- Work-Study is different from other types of financial aid because you do not receive Work-Study monies until you locate a job and begin working.
- An ideal work-study position would be using the skills you are learning in your program at MATC.
- You will know whether you have been awarded Federal Work-Study when you receive your financial aid award letter.
- If your award letter does not include FWS and you are interested in the program, please contact the MATC Financial Aid Office at 414-297-6282 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- As long as you are enrolled in a minimum of six credits and qualify, you will be put on a waiting list until funds become available.
