Federal Work-Study Program


Federal Work-Study 2023-24

Students may work and earn federal work-study wages Tuesday, September 19, 2023 through Saturday, June 8, 2024.  Job postings are added, updated, or removed from the Northwestern University Student Job Board throughout the school year as requested by the hiring supervisors. Students must remain eligible to earn FWS wages. 

If you are hiring a student, please be sure to use HR's new Temp Hiring OnBase form. Find a link to the form as well as other required hiring documents here

If a student declined their 2023-2024 Federal Work-Study allotment in CAESAR  but have changed their mind, please contact our office.

FWS Supervisors and constituents may sign up for our FWS newsletter. Periodic emails are sent through throughout the year.
