Federal Work-Study (FWS) and State Work-Study (SWS) are need-based financial aid programs that provide students with an opportunity to earn money while gaining valuable work experience.

Over 600 University of Puget Sound students participate each year, working on campus or in the local community.

After an FWS or SWS award is made by Student Financial Services, Career and Employment Services (CES) refers each student to a position on campus, or helps to arrange an off-campus work-study job.
