Ok, I am a little confused about work study. I am starting school very soon, and in my financial aid package I was awarded work study where I can earn about $100 a week. Now I know that taxes are taken out of this, but my question is can I earn the $100 dollars before taxes are taken out or is this after? Because if I can only earn the money before taxes, I wont really be earning that much money or the amount the award allows. Im just really confused about it.
