Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), Federal Work Study program (FWS), and Federal Perkins Loans (formerly NDSL) 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.
Federal Work Study and Federal Perkins Loan both have information and regulations that are specific to them. Thus, each program has a special note section to address the regulations and information that is pertinent to that specific program.
