    Work Study Program


    The Federal Work-Study program at Morehouse College provides part-time jobs for our 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. We understand that financing your education can be a challenge, and we are committed to helping you achieve your academic goals. The Federal Work-Study Program is designed to provide you with an opportunity to earn a portion of your financial aid by working in an approved on-campus job. Students are awarded Federal Work-Study funding up to their Cost of Attendance. Funding is limited as approved by the U.S. Department of Education.
