Employment Programs

The University offers two student employment programs: Federal College Work-Study and Institutional Work Program.

Federal College Work-Study Program - The Federal College Work-Study Program (FWS) provides jobs for students who demonstrate financial need and who want to earn money to help pay for some of their educational expenses. Students must file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to establish financial need in order to be awarded FWS. The amount of the award depends upon demonstrated financial need and the amount of funds available. Funding is very limited for this program. The standard award allows the student to work 8 to 10 hours per week for a 15 to 18 week period. Visit the Financial Aid website at http://em.georgiasouthern.edu/finaid for more information.

Institutional Work Program - The Institutional Work Program helps students find part-time jobs in the various departments on campus. All currently enrolled students may participate, and no financial eligibility requirements apply. Interested students should visit the Student Employment Center website at http://jobs.georgiasouthern.edu/SEC/ in order to review the various on-campus job openings and part-time job opportunities available in the Statesboro area. Students must be enrolled in six or more credit hours to qualify for this program.
