The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program is a federal need-based financial aid program designed to provide part-time employment to eligible students in positions both on and off campus. Off-campus positions are located in community service related organizations that are pre-approved through the Financial Aid Office. The FWS program has limited funds and is a first-come, first-serve program. At the beginning of every aid year, positions will become available by July 1st, students will need to view open positions and contact the supervisor for an interview. If you are selected, the supervisor will contact the Financial Aid Office for approval and submit a student employment contract to your Chattanooga State email for you to electronically sign. Returning FWS students must contact their current supervisor if they are seeking a position within their office for the upcoming school year. That supervisor will determine job vacancies in their area and communicate with the Financial Aid Office in regards to student eligibility. If chosen and eligible, students will be notified via TigerWeb and would be required to complete an updated student employment contract.
