Work study is another great way to fund your Cornell College degree. You have to complete your Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) to see if you qualify for Federal Work Study and how much funding you'll receive under work study. 

Sometimes, a student won't qualify for the Federal Work Study but may have the chance to earn assistance through institutional work study. If you qualify for this kind of work study, your skills will need to match the various positions around campus that need your specialized skills. 

You might work as a faculty assistant, a football manager, a greenhouse caretaker, a social media assistant, a stage manager, or a peer writing consultant. There are numerous opportunities on campus for you if you qualify.
