Subject: Updated 2017-2018 Funding Authorizations for the Campus-Based Programs Now Available

In a July 5, 2017 Electronic Announcement, we informed schools that we would recalculate 2017-2018 Federal Work-Study (FWS) and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) final awards for schools. We also announced a temporary hold on FWS and FSEOG drawdowns in G5.

The work necessary to recalculate 2017-2018 FWS and FSEOG awards is complete. Therefore, the temporary hold on FWS and FSEOG drawdowns has been removed and FWS and FSEOG funds are now available in G5. In addition, schools will be notified about their final recalculated awards as explained below.
