Federal Work-Study

Work is available both on campus and off campus for Reed students. Both on and off-campus opportunities include regular student employment and federal work-study (FWS) employment. Regular student employment is funded by the college. The federal work-study program is funded primarily by the federal government. Students typically work about five to 10 hours per week, with a maximum of no more than 20 hours a week. The college recommends that first-year and transfer students work fewer hours during their first semester, until they become accustomed to the time required for academic programs. 

Learn more about FWS on the SEEDS website.
