The Federal Work-Study Community Service Program allows learners to engage in individual community service projects/employment while being part of the Federal Work-Study Program.
The Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) provides part-time employment to learners with financial need. Financial need is based on the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) provided by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  The award amount depends on your financial need and is based on expected weekly employment targets.  Unlike federal grants, funds from the Federal Work-Study are paid to the learner on a bi-weekly basis after employment requirements have been met and wages have been earned.  The inclusion of Federal Work-Study in your financial aid award is not a guarantee of the amount you will earn as you will be paid only for the hours that you actually work.


All federal aid sources must be included in your financial aid, including the Federal Work-Study Program. With this additional federal aid source, it may reduce the amount of federal loans you would be eligible for. Keep in mind that federal loans must be paid back (with interest) whereas the Federal Work-Study Program funds are provided to you bi-weekly and do not require repayment.


To be eligible to apply, applicants must:

  • Have completed the 2018-2019 FAFSA
  • Be a current learner at Capella University
  • Be in good academic standing
  • Be continuously enrolled as a learner during their appointment as a Federal Work-Study Community Service employee
  • Agree to a commitment through June 2019
  • Submit a completed FWS Community Service Questionnaire with online application and resume providing detail on the community service organization and role you would like considered for the FWS Community Service Program. Applications submitted without a completed FWS Questionnaire will not be considered.
  • For additional information on the FWS-Community Service Program, please visit the Federal Work-Study Page on iGuide
