Community Service - Federal Work Study

If your financial aid award includes Federal Work Study (FWS), you are also eligible for Community Service Federal Work Study (CSFWS) positions. These positions focus on improving the quality of life for community residents or solving problems related to their needs. They provide wonderful opportunities to contribute to campus life as well as to the Greater Milwaukee community.

Some examples of CSFWS positions include tutoring grade school children through the College of Education, helping Campus Ministry coordinate community-based assistance programs such as Hunger Task Force or working with the Urban League. Not all FWS positions have a community service designation. Ask the employer or Student Employment Services staff if you have a question about a specific position.
