I just looked up what work study is and from what I understand it's a job you have while you go to school or something? Could someone explain it in simpler terms than wikipedia?
Yeah, it's part of financial aid. So if you aren't eligible for financial aid, you aren't eligible for these job.
Say you do work study as a cashier at the student store, earning $8 an hour.
Your school would pay you $4, and the government would give you $4. = $8.
