Types of Aid: Workstudy
Work-study employment opportunities are available through the need-based Federal and State Work-Study Programs. Limited funds are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis, in accordance with Northern policy. Awards are for a maximum award of $4,000 per academic year. For most jobs, the hourly pay rate is minimum wage (currently $10.30 per hour). Work-study funds are calculated as part of your financial aid package but are not paid until the hours are worked. Northern pays work-study students bi-weekly.
How to Apply
Funding is limited and awarded on need as well as a first-come, first-served basis. Your FAFSA should be submitted by Northern’s priority deadline of February 3, 2023 to be considered for a work study award.
