Are you in need of an intern from Shawnee State University, but you need assistance to pay their wages?

Shawnee State University has been selected to participate in the Federal Work Study (FWS) Experiment. This program seeks to expand the number of private-sector and off-campus job opportunities available to work study recipients who were previously limited to working on-campus jobs.

This program can be used to pay wages for interns who are FWS-eligible as long as their duties align with their current major. In addition, the weekly hours cannot exceed 29 hours per week. However, there may be exceptions to this which will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

If you are a non-profit organization or company, FWS funding will pay 100% of internship wages. If you are a for-profit company, FWS funding is only available to pay 50% of wages for internships and 75% for small businesses (as defined by federal regulations). For-profit employers will be invoiced monthly for the non-allowable portion of the internship wages.
