34 CFR 675.27 - Nature and source of institutional share.
(1) An institution may use any resource available to it, except funds allocated under the FWS program, to pay the institutional share of FWS compensation to its students. The institutional share may be paid in the form of services and equipment, e.g., tuition, room, board, and books.
(2) The institution shall document all amounts claimed as non-cash contributions.
(3) Non-cash compensation may not include forgiveness of a charge assessed solely because of a student's employment under the FWS program.
(b) An institution may not solicit or accept fees, commission, contributions, or gifts as a condition for FWS employment, nor permit any organization with which it has an employment agreement to do so.
