*Fellowships and work-study positions are funded by FWS Community Service. Community Services are defined as services intended to improve the quality of life for community residents, particularly low-income residents, or to solve particular problems related to their needs. FWS Fellows and work-study students work with school-age children, city-wide public schools, and youth-serving organizations in such fields as education, literacy, community development, or social justice.
