Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) and Federal Work Study program (FWS) are called "campus-based programs," although the funding comes from the federal government. They are called "campus-based" because the awards in all three programs are determined by the professional staff of the educational institution's Financial Aid office operating under strict and detailed guidelines provided by the U.S. Department of Education.
For the federal campus-based programs, need is determined according to the difference between the applicant's resources and a standard budget for students. Resources include student's and spouse's earnings, non-taxable income, VA and Social Security benefits, external sources of aid, any educational loans, a portion of the student's savings and assets, and in the case of dependent students, family contributions.
