Worcester Campus Work Study Positions

Federal Work-Study jobs are strictly reserved for students who receive FWS funds as part of their financial assistance packages. Earnings are paid directly to the student through bi-weekly paychecks. Students' weekly hours and wages are limited by eligibility and fund availability, and students are only compensated for hours they actually work. Students who decline FWS funds one semester are not guaranteed to receive them in the future, and may have to find jobs through Emerson Employment. Students may appeal for FWS funds in future semesters after receiving their initial financial aid packages.
