Work-study is a federal grant that provides students with opportunities to find part-time jobs, helping them to cover nonbillable educational expenses through biweekly paychecks. You can earn money to help cover your non-tuition financial expenses, such as textbooks, school supplies or essential personal items, by working for Temple or an approved off-campus employer. 

To be eligible, students must have a valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file and qualify for federal financial aid. Students must also demonstrate a need that’s unmet by their financial aid offer. All needs are determined by a student’s FAFSA.

Work-study is packaged on a student’s financial aid offer. Students who do not have work-study on their current aid offer can request a review for the grant by contacting us.
