Federal Work-Study Program
Under the FWS Program, schools provide jobs on-campus and off-campus for needy undergraduate and graduate students. Federal funds will provide 75 percent of student payrolls with a few exceptions. A matching school or off-campus agency contribution will provide the remaining 25 percent, unless a regulatory waiver is granted. The Federal share of earned compensation for employment at private for-profit organizations may not exceed 50 percent. The Federal share may be 90 percent under certain conditions for employment at private nonprofit and public agencies. The Federal funds being obligated at this time for the FWS Program for the 2008-2009 Award Year are $972,831,258. The approved allocations are for 3,383 schools and are estimated to benefit 646,689 students.
Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program
Under the FSEOG Program, schools make grant awards to undergraduate students with exceptional financial need. Federal funds will provide 75 percent of the grants to students who are eligible for the program. There is a maximum student award of $4,000 for each academic year of undergraduate study awarded by participating schools. The school provides the remaining 25 percent from its own school resources, unless a regulatory waiver is granted. The Federal funds being obligated at this time for the FSEOG Program for the 2008-2009 Award Year are $755,478,221.

However, there were no new Federal funds obligated for the Perkins Loan Program for the 2008-2009 Award Year. A school is authorized to use cash from its revolving fund up to the amount of its Perkins Loan Level of Expenditure.
