Work-Study Program

CBT College participates in the Federal Work Study Program (FWS), which creates part-time opportunities for students from low-income families. These jobs range from five to twenty hours per week. CBT College encourages students under the FWS program to perform community service and work related to their courses of study to help pay for education expenses.

What is the FWS Program?
The FWS Program provides funds that are earned through part-time employment to assist students in financing the costs of postsecondary education. Students can receive FWS funds at approximately 3,400 participating postsecondary institutions. Institutional financial aid administrators at participating institutions have substantial flexibility in determining the amount of FWS awards to provide to students who are enrolled or accepted for enrollment. Hourly wages must not be less than the federal minimum wage.

Visit the U.S. Department of Education for more information.
Job Positions
Job positions can be either on-campus or off-campus. Most off-campus positions will be at private nonprofit agencies or public agencies and will be in the public interest. For most schools, once you accept the FWS award on your award letter, you will be sent information regarding the steps you should take for securing a FWS job.

The amount of money that you earn cannot exceed your total FWS award. When assigning work hours, your employer will consider your total award and your class schedule. Average work schedules are from 10 to 15 hours a week.
