Work Study Program


This program is designed to assist students who are in need of employment to pursue their education. Work is performed on campus, and the student may work up to a maximum of 13 hours per week at minimum wage depending upon the amount of his or her work study award.

Priority is given to students with the lowest EFC, determined by information provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), who also receive Federal Pell Grants on a first come, first serve basis. There is no guarantee that every eligible student will receive or renew a work-study award, so it is important to apply early to have a better chance of receiving a job. Work-Study awards are based on the availability of funds at Lawson State.

After receiving an assignment students must complete the following forms required for on campus work:
