Background

[horizontal rule]

The Federal Work-Study Program (FWSP) provides an annual allocation to the university through the United States Department of Education. This federal allocation, combined with matching funds from the university or another employing agency, provides eligible students with added employment opportunities. The FWSP is only available until all funds have been spent.

Policy

[horizontal rule]

The FWSP assists the university in achieving its student employment objectives and student financial assistance goals. Consequently, ASU participates in and complies with the guidelines of this program.

ASU also requires that recipients of FWSP awards and the departments or units that employ them through the program support the program’s objectives and comply with its guidelines.

Objectives

The objectives of the FWSP are to expand:

  1. employment opportunities that provide students with financial assistance, valuable work experience, and educational development

    and

  2. the potential university and community work force available to provide essential services that might otherwise suffer due to lack of staff or funds.

The FWSP includes on- and off-campus jobs, America Reads, America Counts, and community service employment opportunities.
