Employment on campus, or at an approved off-campus partner site, is a perfect way for you to gain real-world skills and complement your academic experience while earning money to help offset expenses.   

Work-study is a federal grant that provides students with opportunities to find part-time jobs, helping you to cover nonbillable educational expenses through biweekly paychecks. You can earn money to help cover you nontuition financial expenses, such as textbooks, school supplies or essential personal items, by working for Temple or an approved off-campus employer. 

You must have a valid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on file and qualify for federal financial aid to be eligible for federal work-study. You must also have financial need as demonstrated by the FAFSA.
