Work Study

at Union

Federal Work Study provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help cover education expenses. Your financial need is determined by the results of your annual FAFSA and can be at any of our academic centers. Typically FWS recipients work in clerical and administrative positions. A student may also serve as a research assistant to a professor or instructor as long as the work is in line with the professor’s official duties and is considered work for the university.
