Student assistance for college expenses may include more than traditional financial aid. Other alternatives are work opportunities that can be secured through FVTC.
Federal Work-Study provides part-time jobs for our degree seeking students with financial need, allowing them to earn money to help pay education expenses. The program encourages community service work and work related to the student’s course of study.
Here’s a quick overview of Federal Work-Study:
- It provides part-time employment while you are enrolled in school (hours are based on individual eligibility)
- It’s available to students enrolled in an aid eligible program who exhibit financial need
- It’s available to full-time or part-time students
- Funding is limited
Internships are a valuable way to get practical work experience in the student's chosen field of study. Many internships are paid.
FVTC's Student Employment Services (SES) office provides students and
graduates with private-sector employment assistance. SES receives full-
and part-time employment openings from area employers. Openings
typically match the skills that FVTC graduates and currently enrolled
students develop in their programs.
