Federal Work-study Program

Want to work on campus while you study? We’ve got just the thing. The Federal Work-study Program provides part-time employment to student-veterans who qualify for the program. At AU, we offer opportunities to be part of the Federal Work-study Program in the Veterans Services office located within AU Central. Here’s how it works:

  • To be eligible to the FWS Program the student must be receiving benefits under one of the following education programs:
    o Chapter 30: The Montgomery GI Bill
    o Chapter 31: Veterans Vocational Rehabilitation Program
    o Chapter 32: Veterans Educational Assistance Program
    o Chapter 33: Post 9/11 GI Bill
    o Chapter 35: Survivors and Dependents Educational Assistance Program
    o Chapter 1606: The Montgomery GI Bill – Selected Reserve
    o Chapter 1607: Reserve Educational Assistance Program
  • The applicant must be considered at least a “three-quarter time” student.
  • Work-study students will perform VA related tasks as directed by the Veterans Service Coordinator in AU Central.
