1 .<-NARRATOR:->Listen to a conversation between a student and a financial-aid official.
1 .<-FEMALE OFFICIAL:->Hi, can I help you?
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:->Yes. Um, I'd like to get help with the, uh, you know, payment for my classes-ah some sort of financial aid.
2 .The-the problem is, I don't know much about it, so I don't really know where to begin...I saw this poster about work-study programs...can you tell me something about that?
1 .<-FEMALE OFFICIAL:->Well, I-I think you're talking about the government-sponsored work-study program.It works like this.
2 .You work on campus and get paid an hourly wage, just like a regular job.
3 .However, instead of getting a paycheck, the money goes directly to your bill for your courses.
4 .But, almost all work-study jobs pay minimum wage,which is usually pretty low.
5 .The truth is...you might do better getting a job off campus, since you can do whatever you want with the money, like paying your rent or-or buying textbooks.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:->Thanks! That's very useful. So how do I find out what's out there?
1 .<-FEMALE OFFICIAL:->Let me show you our catalog of various programs, as well as scholarships offered here.
2 .That's your best bet, really, if you can find a good scholarship, because you don't have to pay the money back-you might qualify if your grades are good enough, or if you have the right background...
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:->Yeah, that sounds like something I should try for.
1 .<-FEMALE OFFICIAL:->Now, this is my desk copy of the catalog, but I can give you your own copy, if you want.
2 .Oh yeah, be sure to visit the university library, too. There's a whole section on financial aid, including application forms.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:->Why isn't all the information listed in the catalog? It'd be so much easier.
1 .<-FEMALE OFFICIAL:->Oh, if we did that, the catalog would be too heavy to pick up!
2 .Civic clubs, foundations-organizations from all over the country offer scholarships or other financial assistance to college students.
3 .And all kinds of companies have programs to help their employees' children go to college.
4 .If either of your parents works for a large corporation, have them check to see if their companies do that.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:->OK, good idea.
2 .Hey, my dad works for a big accounting firm, and he's a member of a professional accounting organization-do you think they'd offer financial aid?
1 .<-FEMALE OFFICIAL:->Yes, that's fairly common.
2 .Especially if you were planning to go into accounting ... what are you studying? What do you plan to do after you graduate?
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:->I wanna become a dentist. I'm enrolled in the pre-med program for dentistry.
1 .<-FEMALE OFFICIAL:->OK, so I'd suggest looking in the library for information on organizations that have to do with dentistry.
2 .Any number of them might offer scholarships to students planning to join their profession.
1 .<-MALE STUDENT:->[Excited; he’d rather get free money than work] I'll definitely investigate that one.
1 .<-FEMALE OFFICIAL:->Great, but be sure to talk to one of our librarians too.
2 .They get the same questions over and over, so they can save you a great deal of time.
