Federal Work-Study & Student Employment

The Financial Aid Office administers a Federal Work–Study Program (FWSP) for NCNM students. FWSP is a federally subsidized program with a limited allocation, and award amounts are evaluated annually. Students with demonstrated financial needs, who indicate on their FAFSA application an interest in student employment are eligible to receive an award.

The program allows students to work on or off campus to earn money to be applied to education–related expenses. Wage rates are $11 per hour and jobs include positions such as teaching assistant, grader, library assistant, medicinary support, front desk help, patient coordinator and reading tutor. Due to the demands of the programs, students generally find their schedules limit the amount of time they can work to 20 hours per week or less.

Search all departments to see all jobs posted for the year. Only enrolled students at NCNM are eligible to apply for these positions.

The number of students receiving an award is limited by the program funding received and is awarded to students as applications are received until the funding is fully utilized. Additional policies regarding reallocation and award reductions are outlined in the Student Employment Handbook.
