Work Study Programs

Scope Note: 
Programs, generally federally funded, providing part-time employment to students who need financial aid to begin or continue their education -- usually at the postsecondary level and different from "work experience programs" in that "work study" emphasizes financial aid and not employment experience (Note: Prior to Mar80, the Scope Note did not make this distinction)
