Federal Work-Study

The Federal Work-Study program provides part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the recipient's course of study.

Federal Work-Study is available to undergraduate and graduate students with financial need.

To apply for the Federal Work-Study program, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the College’s priority deadline. Work-study is offered to students who demonstrate need. However, the responsibility of applying for work-study jobs rests with the student.

The amount of work-study you are eligible to earn is shown on your financial aid award letter viewable online using the Financial Aid Self Service Tool which can be accessed from the student menu on the McDaniel Archway portal.

The amount of your work-study award is determined by your need and the availability of funds at the College.

Work-study positions are available in departments and offices throughout McDaniel College as well as at off-campus community service jobs.
