FWS is awarded to undergraduate students who demonstrate financial need. The award ranges from $500 to $2000 per year and priority is given to students who meet the FAFSA priority application deadline of February 14th.
If you are eligible for FWS it may be part of your financial aid package. At this point, we do not anticipate being able to make additional FWS awards for the 2013-2014 aid year. Please contact the UMBC Career Services Center for information on available work opportunities.
Finding a Position
Awarded students are emailed in early August with details of how to locate a position. Contact information is provided on each job listing so students can submit their application/resume.
Students who have secured employment and completed all necessary payroll paperwork are eligible to begin work the first day of class each fall or spring term. Students with FWS awards must secure employment by September 13 or awards will be cancelled for non-response. Due to limited funding, cancelled awards cannot automatically be reinstated.
