Federal work-study is a work program funded by Brandeis and the federal government. Students may work either at an on-campus department or office or at an approved off-campus community-service agency.

The Federal work-study allotment is not credited to a student's account. Rather, students receive a weekly paycheck based upon actual hours worked. Work-study awards are generally used toward indirect expenses such as books, supplies, transportation and miscellaneous personal spending.

Although work-study earnings are taxable, any wages earned under the federal work-study program will be excluded from a student's income when he or she is considered for financial aid for the following year.

University Employment

University employment is a work program funded entirely by Brandeis. It is awarded to students who do not qualify for federal work-study funds.

The university employment allotment is not credited to a student's account. Rather, students receive a weekly paycheck based upon actual hours worked.

A student's actual earnings will depend upon the availability of hours involved in any given position(s).
