Federal Work-Study for Off-Campus Employers

Federal Work-Study (FWS) is a federally subsidized program which provides part-time employment opportunities to eligible students to help meet the costs of postsecondary education. Based on results of the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), eligible students are awarded an allotment which may be earned through part-time employment in FWS approved positions either on or off-campus.

What are the benefits of enrolling in the Federal Work-Study Program as an employer?

FWS funds provide qualifying on and off-campus organizations the ability to hire Mason students at minimal cost. While initially all employers are charged 100% of wages, reimbursement is federally subsidized at 75% of a FWS student's wage. Employers must cover the remaining 25%. 

What kind of employers can participate?

At this time, Mason only offers partnership opportunities to nonprofits, schools, and government agencies. 

What steps do I need to take to participate?

Organizations interested in pursuing an FWS partnership with Mason must complete the Off-Campus Employer Interest Form and submit it to Mason's FWS Coordinator for review. The FWS Coordinator will reply with a decision and, if approved, with the Off-Campus Agreement and any other necessary forms for review and submission.
