To be awarded Federal Work-Study, a student must meet the following requirements:
The awarded student initiates placement procedures. Students must use Panther Career Net (the student on-line job board). Panther Career Net (PCN) assists students with many career opportunities, including on-campus and off-campus employment opportunities. The student will contact prospective employers for interviews. Participating supervisors are required to provide job descriptions to the Federal Work-Study students before the student is hired. Supervisors will be notified of the procedure for submitting job descriptions. It is the student's responsibility to arrange for an interview with the prospective supervisors.
What is Panther Career Net (PCN)?
Panther Career Net (PCN) is Georgia State University's central 24/7 online job and internship board for students. PCN is designed to help the career services office and employers communicate with students about managing their career and job search.

The summer application is available for students to download usually during the month of February and students are encouraged to apply for financial aid, including Federal Work-Study, as soon as possible. Awards are made on a first-come, first-served basis and are limited. Priority is given to those who apply by the deadline date. The Summer Federal Work-Study Program is usually very small in comparison to the fall/spring program.
