Summer Internships: Summer Savings Replacement Information

Students on financial aid are typically expected to work over the summer, saving between $2,100 and $2,600.  If you were unable to save the amount specified in your financial aid award, we encourage you to contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss an adjustment to your aid award.  Additional details of the summer savings replacement policy are available online.

Federal Work-Study (FWS)

Students who have Federal Work-Study included as part of their financial aid award may receive payment for community service while working with public or private nonprofit organizations in areas such as education, health care, housing and neighborhood improvement, literacy training, and other activities specified in the Community Service Act. The Student Employment program works directly with the student and organization and approves all summer Federal Work-Study contracts. For information, contact the Undergraduate Financial Aid Office.

(Note: Not all students with a job in their aid package are eligible for FWS. Your financial aid award notice will specifically state “Federal Work-Study” if you are eligible.)
