Is CBFWS right for you?

Have you received a Federal Work Study (FWS) award as part of your financial aid package? You can work at a local nonprofit for a higher rate of pay than an on-campus work study job!

Cool work
CBFWS employers do everything from tutoring to arts advocacy.

Resume builder
Get real work experience and build your skills at a local nonprofit.

Transportation time is covered
The clock starts the minute you leave campus and stops the minute you get back.

Your money
Like all work study jobs, you can apply your earnings to tuition or receive a regular paycheck.

$10.00/hour vs. $7.25/hour
With CBFWS, you can earn your full federal work study award in fewer hours.

If off-campus community-based work study is not right for you, try an on-campus FWS job.
