Financial Aid Considerations

Many students receive either a Federal Work Study (FWS) award or a Barnard College Job (BCJ) award as part of their financial aid package.

Please note: Students cannot earn beyond their work awards. If you see that your award is running low and you wish to continue working, please contact the Financial Aid Office to see if you are eligible for an increase.

Federal Work-Study Awards (FWS)

Students with a FWS award are granted awards based on their financial need. These awards are federally subsidized, and students may work on Barnard's campus, Columbia's campus, or at a variety of community service jobs

Barnard College Job Awards (BCJ)

Students with a BCJ award have been designated an amount of money they can earn as part of their financial aid package. This amount can only be used for jobs on Barnard’s campus and cannot be earned at Columbia or other off-campus locations.
