What is Federal Work-Study?

Work-Study is a program funded by the Federal Government that offers financial support to students with a demonstrated financial need. Eligible students may use the money awarded to them by obtaining a Work-Study job at the

University or with an approved off-campus employer. Work-Study is offered during the academic year only. Review available jobs using the on-line database, SCOTjobs.

Eligibility

    To be eligible for a Work-Study job, a student must meet the following criteria:
  • Demonstrate a financial need as determined by the Financial Aid Office.
  • Maintain satisfactory academic progress (e.g., at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA) while working under the Work-Study program.

Benefits to Work-Study. Why Earn Your Award?

  • Earn your award as a paycheck just like a part-time job
  • Access to more on-campus jobs
  • Flexible schedule with your academics
  • Save travel time & gas money
  • Be part of the UCR community
  • Establish a network

How Do I Apply?

  • New students must file a FAFSA financial aid application and returning students must complete their renewal FAFSA in  March (check with the Financial Aid Office for the exact date).
  • If you obtain Work-Study, you will receive a financial aid award notification that notes the gross earnings you can receive under the Work-Study Program via GROWL
  • You may use your Work-Study award during the year or elect not to use it. If you decide not to use your award, you will not receive Work-Study in subsequent years, as funds are very limited.
