Federal Work Study

Federal Work-Study is a financial aid program for students who have financial need. The program funds part-time jobs for undergraduate and graduate students, allowing students to earn money to help pay educational expenses. Learn more about Federal Work Study by visiting our main campus Financial Aid Website

Note that Ross Graduate students are not automatically offered Federal Work Study. To be considered for Work Study, students must file a FAFSA before the University's priority due date, March 31st and email rossfinaid@umich.edu to request for consideration.

Campus Jobs for Students

Students who have Federal Work Study and whom do not can search for jobs online. The university and Ann Arbor communities enjoy an active employment market. On campus, the university library system and the Housing Information Office are frequently in search of good employees — and these are just two of the many departments employing students who do not have Work-Study.
