					FEDERAL WORK STUDY PROGRAM
   What is the Federal Work
        Study Program?
 A need-based financial aid program designed
  to assist students in earning money to meet
  their college expenses.
 Because working on campus is a retention
  tool, we are committed to encouraging
  students to work.
 Work study students will help departments
  maximize their wage budgets so funds can be
  better used for other programs/services.
Advantages of hiring a work
       study student

 Federal funds pay 75% of the student’s wage
  and the employer matches 25%.
 You can help your departments maximize
  wage funding.
 You can often hire more students.
 You may be able to keep your students longer
    Work study allocations

 Each eligible student is awarded an amount
  per semester that determines the maximum
  number of hours per week that they can
  work.
 Once those hours are exceeded, the
  employer must automatically be charged at
  100%.
      Recruiting work study
            students
 Use the same process to place an ad on the job
  board (www.unr.edu/cn) that you usually do and
  gather applications.
   Click on both work study and regular.
   Add to comment section “work study preferred.”
 Compile a list of applicants R#s and names and
  submit to:
   Sandi Guidry (sguidry@unr.edu)
   Suzanne Bach (bach@unr.edu) or
   Kathy Imasaki (kimasaki@unr.edu).
 They will review financial aid information and reply
  with those who can be considered work study.
 Expected turnaround is 2 Days.
              Continued…

 Interviewing may commence at any time.
 You should also submit information on
  student employees who are returning to work
  in your department. Even though they may
  not have had work study last semester, it is
  possible that they could be funded in a new
  semester.
 Now you can hire 3 more work study students
  or keep your students longer.
           Dispelling Myths

 It is harder to process paperwork and
  interview.
   Basically, there is no difference except for coding
    on the PAF (FW1 = fall work study; FW2 = spring
    work study)
 Regular student employees have more
  experience.
   Not necessarily true. Many competent and
    qualified students qualify.
