Info Session for Community Organizations on Hiring Students through the Federal Work-Study Program
Enterprise Hall, Fourth Floor Conference Room
May 3, 2012, 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Federal Financial Aid for college students includes a program called Federal Work-Study (FWS). This program provides funding for students to be hired as paid employees. Most FWS positions are on the college campus itself, however, the FWS program includes the option for students to earn these funds through service in their local community. For most of these employers, a 30% match is expected.
To learn more about this program, please attend this information session by the staff of Mason's Center for Leadership and Community Engagement. The processes for posting positions, hiring and paying students in your organization will be described, including an information packet with all the necessary forms (these will also be provided electronically). We will also include workshopping time so you can explore how to make use of this program's flexibility in order to best meet you organization's needs.
All are welcome. For questions, contact Wendy Wagner: firstname.lastname@example.org.
