Work study advice

  1. Oct 3, 2008 #1
    I recently came across an opportunity to work in a workstudy program at a cancer research center in seattle. The problem is at my current college im am not eligible for work study according to the COA - EFC = Financial Need formula. I really would like to take advantage of this opportunity.

    Does anyone know if negotiations are possible with the college one attends to become work study eligible? For example, no according to the formula i dont have financial need but in real life my parents arent paying for my college...

    I'm not familiar with that program in particular, but one option might be to contact the people in the department doing the research. Rather than working through an established program, it is possible they have funding for a student or two outside of that. It never hurts to ask.
