Who is qualified to receive work study?
Any student who is eligible for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), has documented financial need, and checks the box on the FAFSA form for work study is qualified. Students can request and/or apply for work study funds any time during the academic year.
Where will I work?

- Community Service positions on-campus (Library, child care center, etc.) and also at college extension sites and in community agencies.

Applicants may contact our Financial Aid office at 603-230-4013 to check if they are eligible. Our Financial Aid Department has a list of any work-study job openings. In-state students may also be eligible for state-funded Community College Work-Study funding. Work-study funding is also need-based.
