Not only does the Federal Work-Study Program provide part-time employment, it also encourages these students to participate in community service activities.


The Federal Work-Study Program is overseen by the Department of Education and falls under the Federal Student Aid Information Center.

These can include but are not limited to universities, colleges, hospital schools of nursing, vocational-technical schools and for- profit institutions.
