Federal Work Study
If federal work study eligibility is listed on your financial aid award, you can apply for an approved federal work study job. Most social work students will earn work study through their field internship. However, you can also access these funds by working in another job on campus. You must demonstrate financial need, meet all application deadlines, be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen and enroll in at least eight units for credit each semester to be eligible Please note that University of Southern California employees are not eligible for federal work study.
Federal work study awards for students in the MSW program will range from $3,000 to $5,500 per academic year based on enrollment.
For more general information on federal work study programs, please visit the USC Financial Aid Office website.
