With the aid of federal funds, Greenfield Community College provides part-time on/off campus employment opportunities for students who demonstrate financial need. Work-study offers students an excellent opportunity to earn spending money while gaining work experience. Hours for work-study positions are flexible enough to fit with your academic schedule. Funds from the Federal Work-Study Program enable eligible students to work up to an average of 10 hours per week each semester while classes are in session, and up to 15 hours per week at other times. Students are expected to budget FWS earnings for educational expenses.
Please note: Students with Federal Work Study Awards are not guaranteed automatic job placement, rather, like any part-time employment, jobs are available to which the student worker submits an application. The FWS Supervisor makes her own hiring decisions based on the student application and interview.
