The FWS award amount is the maximum dollars a student may earn. Half of the remaining award may be earned in fall and half in spring.  Departments may choose to divide the award up across the academic year to include periods of non-enrollment, such as Winter or Summer.  It is the department’s responsibility to work with the FWS student and track the earnings to ensure they do not earn more than their award amount.
