FWS programs provides jobs for students who have financial need and will earn a portion of their educational expenses. Award amounts are determined by the student's need and the number of hours that can reasonably be handled with the course load selected. Students are limited to a maximum of 19 hours per week when school is in session. If funds are available students may be eligible to work the summer session.
Other student employment opportunities are available at various Porterville College campus locations. Funding for these student employment positions is different from the Federal Work Study program and positions vary each year.
