Federal Work-Study

This project used two waves of the nationally representative Beginning Postsecondary Student survey (BPS:96-01 and BPS:04-09) to study the effects of access to the Federal Work Study (FWS) program on educational and labor market outcomes (including persistence, degree completion, student loan debt, and post-college employment). The researchers examined whether students are in jobs that are related to their studies and whether and in what ways students think current employment affects their academic and future labor market prospects.
