Federal Work-Study Request
The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program provides job opportunities for students who qualify for need-
based aid, allowing them to earn money to help pay for their education. The FWS Program encourages
community service work and jobs related to your course of study, when possible. Wages for the FWS Pro-
gram are $10.00 per hour, paid in arrears on the 15th and 30th of each month. The total FWS award de-
pends on when you apply, your need level, and our FWS Program funding for the current academic year.
If you are interested in participating in the FWS Program for this academic year, please complete this form
and return it to the Financial Aid Office. After receiving your request, the Financial Aid Office will evaluate
your eligibility and then forward additional information to you. FWS Program funds are limited and there-
fore they are awarded to students on a first-come-first-served basis. Once funds have been used no addi-
tional awards can be made. If you have any questions regarding your financial aid please contact us.
Each week, I would like to work ◄less than 10 hours. ◄10-20 hours. ◄20+ hours.
If needed, may we reduce your Federal Student Loan funds
to make room for your Federal Work-Study funds? It helps
you reduce your amount of debt after you leave college.
Have you previously worked for the Federal Work-Study Program? YES* NO
*If you answered YES to the previous question, when was that (e.g., spring 2018)?
STUDENT CERTIFICATION: By signing this form, I affirm that I would like to participate in the Federal
Work-Study Program; I understand that the Financial Aid Office reserves the right, on behalf of Bluegrass
Community & Technical College and the United States Department of Education, to review, change, or

nancial aid documents, I may be fined, sentenced to jail, or both.
