Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) provides part-time employment opportunities within New England Conservatory to eligible students to help pay for incidental expenses during the year. In order to be eligible for a FWS award, a student must demonstrate financial need, as determined by his/her FAFSA results. The Federal Work-Study program is funded by the federal government with a matching contribution by NEC.
Through the Student Aide Program, New England Conservatory also provides opportunities to those who do not qualify for Federal Work-Study. Students who are ineligible to work off-campus or who have special skills are given priority for these positions.
