Pace’s Fellowship program is a holistic semester-long program designed to foster student leaders as they pursue personal and professional growth. Not only will Fellows get hands-on leadership training, they will learn to balance their work, school, and personal lives and will build supportive relationships with their cohort of fellows.

How do I know if I qualify for Work Study at VCU?

To be eligible for FWS, students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and be degree-seeking, enrolled at least half-time, meet Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements, and have remaining need available. “Need” can only be determined by the FAFSA and is defined as the difference between the students COA (cost of attendance) and the students EFC (estimated family contribution). The EFC number is a direct output of the FAFSA and can only be obtained via the FAFSA. Priority will be given to students who submit their FAFSA by the priority deadline. To verify FWS, log in to eServices. Under the “financial aid” tab, select “financial aid status,” then select “financial aid history” to see the amount awarded. Any change to enrollment status must be reported to the Federal Work-Study office. Failure to do so may result in cancellation of the FWS award without notice. Contact the Federal Work-Study office with questions about eligibility or assistance with the verification process.
