Summer Federal Work-Study is a limited opportunity whereby students may work at participating off-campus Evanston community service and government agencies. (Most on-campus positions are considered temporary, non-work-study jobs during the summer and wages are funded 100% by the Northwestern department. If you will continue your FWS employment in summer with your on-campus employer, please make sure they update your myHR position, HR Department ID, and wage funding information in myHR so you are paid appropriately.) Students who are granted permission to work and earn FWS wages in summer cannot exceed 37.5 cumulative hours worked per week amongst all positions where Northwestern University is the parent employer.
Students are expected to save a portion of their earnings to meet education costs during the following academic year. For the 2023-24 academic year, students are expected to save $1,800 which will be noted in CAESAR and must fit within your 2023-24 financial aid need-based aid package.
Students must complete and submit their 2023-24 financial aid materials by May 1st (see your to-do list via CAESAR). Students must have been offered and participated in a work-study position during the current, 2022-2023, academic year and be offered work-study in their financial aid package for the following academic year, 2023-24. Students completing graduation requirements in Spring 2023 or Summer 2023 are not eligible to participate. Additional parameters may apply.
Students who currently work at FWS off-campus Evanston community service or government agencies during the normal academic year and wish to continue their work during the summer must contact the Work-Study Office to confirm their eligibility and participation.
After confirming your eligibility to work and earn FWS wages in summer, you may apply to one of the positions listed below. Once hired, students and their employer must submit a completed Summer Work-Study Authorization Form to the Work-Study Office.
