There is a separate award for summer Federal Work Study (FWS). You don’t need to be enrolled in summer classes to qualify for the summer Federal Work Study Program.

If you were eligible for the Federal Work Study this current academic year, AND you will be enrolled at the University of Miami during the following academic year AND would like to be considered for the Federal Work Study Program (FWS) for the summer, you must complete the SUMMER FEDERAL WORK STUDY REQUEST FORM from Student Financial Assistance and Employment. Be sure to complete the FWS section of the form to be considered for summer FWS (you are not required to complete the loan information of the form unless you are interested in applying for a summer loan).

If determined eligible, students will receive a summer award letter, indicating the award amount. If awarded, students may use the summer FWS funding for on-campus jobs or approved community service agencies in the Miami-Dade County area.

If you have any questions about applying for summer financial assistance, please contact Student Financial Assistance and Employment.

Federal Work Study during the summer term is an extension of the prior academic year. Eligible students are reviewed based on one of the following two criteria:
Student participated in the FWS program during the academic year OR Student is enrolled for summer classes at the University of Miami
Students must have a prior academic year FAFSA on file demonstrating eligibility in order to get a FWS summer award. Students who graduate in the spring semester will not be considered for summer FWS unless accepted into another UM program. Law and Medical students will be reviewed for eligibility by their respective Financial Aid offices.
While enrollment in summer classes is not required for students to participate in summer FWS, during summers when funding is especially limited, priority is given to those students who are enrolled.
