Federal Work-Study Program
The Federal Work-Study program provides funding for part-time jobs to undergraduate and graduate students who need additional financial aid. A wide variety of jobs are available, both on and off-campus and include community service work.
All financial aid awards, including those for work-study, depend on the information that you provide in your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The earlier you file your FAFSA, the greater your chance of being awarded Federal-Work Study funding.
You will be able to see your work-study award in CUNYfirst. But you must also activate and check your Hunter email account in order to receive notifications about work-study and job placement schedules.
You will be able to search our database for jobs, submit applications, and start meeting supervisors or interviewing with prospective employers. All of these steps take time, so we encourage you to start early, be patient, and keep checking on your status, from confirming your work-study award, to following up on interviews and offers.
