Importance of Federal Work-Study Programs

Today, the Chronicle of Higher Education reports on a set of recommendations to improve the Federal Work-Study Program, in its article " Low-Income Students Often Miss Out on Federal Work-Study Funds".

The report recommends that the work-study funds are more readily available to low-income students and that there are more work-study jobs that are relevant to the students' majors.  The idea of supporting internships is also discussed.
