Community Service Federal Work Study (servicelearning.org)women working with elderly

The Federal Work Study program is "…to encourage students receiving Federal student financial assistance to participate in community service activities that will benefit the Nation and engender in the students a sense of social responsibility and commitment to the community." 

The Higher Education Act (HEA) states that one of the purposes of the Federal Work Study program is "…to encourage students receiving Federal student financial assistance to participate in community service activities that will benefit the Nation and engender in the students a sense of social responsibility and commitment to the community." And colleges and universities are required to spend 7% of FWS funds on community service positions. Check out these resources from the NSLC collection to see how you can meet and exceed the community service FWS mandate at your college or university or get a FWS student at your community-based organization.
