The Federal Work-Study (FWS) Program at AULA provides paid employment opportunities to students who apply for federal financial aid with the purpose of providing financial assistance and valuable employment experience. Even if you are not currently receiving a grant or loan, you may be eligible for a position through FWS.
Priority is given to financial aid applicants with the highest level of need, who meet the priority deadline, on a first-come, first-served basis until the funds are depleted.
If you are interested in a Work-Study position, and have not applied for financial aid, follow steps 1 and 2 on the How To Apply page under Financial Aid: http://www.antiochla.edu/financial-aid/how-to-apply/
Once you have completed these steps, email your resume to Chris Freeman, Director of Financial Aid. Please include all experience so that a variety of supervisors can determine if you might be a good fit. Your resume will be added to the resource list and can be searched by the supervisors.
Please be sure to use spellcheck and also check your grammar. If you have made an error on your resume, the chances are good that the supervisor will move on to the next resume. Having someone review your resume before submitting would also be worthwhile.
If your award letter has an estimated work-study award, this is the amount you could be eligible for. (Estimated work-study awards are only given to those who are in the Priority group; however, if you did not receive an estimated award, it does not mean that you are not eligible) The next step is to secure a position.
We have positions on-campus and off. We are in the process of creating more off-campus positions so please check back here regularly.
Click here for a list of the positions that are currently open. To apply, simply click on the job and send the supervisor an email. Use the body of the email to state your interest in the position and why you feel your experience makes you a good match for the job. This will serve as your cover letter. From there, the supervisor can access and review your resume from the resource list.
The next step will be an interview. Typically, supervisors will want to interview a few applicants before making a final decision.
If you are selected, you will need to complete these steps before you begin working:
- Secure the awards by contacting the Financial Aid office to revise your award letter, and
- Set up an appointment with Robert Stapp in Human Resources to submit employment paperwork and arrange an orientation.
