Can I work over the summer as part of my work study award?

Summer Work Study

"Would you like fries with that order?" Not the way you wanted to spend your summer. Afraid you won't be able to save money for next semester. Good News, many colleges offer summer work study programs.

Work study programs are very similar to those offered during the school year. Some are federally funded, others by the school. All have a set wage and maximum amount of money that can earned. A second job may be required as a supplement, but at least you'll know some of next years aid has been taken care of.
