Federal Work-Study (FWS) Jobs
Students eligible for need-based financial aid programs can participate in Federal Work-Study (FWS). Assistance is federal aid earned through part-time employment on-campus or off-campus.
If you satisfy the eligibility requirements, FWS will be one of the various types of financial assistance for which you will be considered.
Work opportunities are available at many UNO locations. Federal Work-Study is awarded as part of your financial aid package and is not a guarantee for employment. In order to activate your FWS award, you still need to apply and be hired in a FWS job.
Students are paid at least a minimum wage and FWS earnings are paid every two weeks. The Office of Student Employment Services has a complete listing of FWS opportunities.
