Many Loyola students receive a Federal Work Study (FWS) award as part of their financial aid package. This program allows students to work part-time while earning money for school. Now FWS-eligible students can work at local nonprofit organizations at a higher rate of pay ($10/hour)! These are called Community Based Federal Work Study (CBFWS) jobs. Interested students should apply here.
Advantages of CBFWS:
- Cool work: CBFWS employers do everything from tutoring to environmental advocacy.
- Resume builder: Gain valuable professional skills and experience working at a real nonprofit.
- Transportation time is covered: You’re on the clock from the minute you leave campus until the minute you get back. Plus, most CBFWS employers are close to campus.
- Earn the same $$ in less time: Most students are awarded $1000 in Federal Work Study funds per semester, though this may vary by financial need. With CBFWS, you can earn your full award in fewer hours.
