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?
it's apart of your financial aid package that you receive for school. for example, i qualified for $2000 in work study this semester, so that's how much i'm able to earn through a work study job. however, i pocket that money and can spend it on whatever i want/need like toothpaste, transportation and shit.
