U' FUNDS REDUCED BY $250,000
By FANNIE WEINSTEIN
Several hundred University students
will be out of work-study jobs this year
due to cuts in the federally-funded
financial aid program, University of-
ficials said last week.
Originally, the University was
scheduled to lose about $370,000, a 17
percent cut in its work-study budget.
But earlier this summer, the Depar-
tment of Education allocated an ad-
ditional $44 million to the program,
which will restore up to $150,000 for the
University, according to Harvey
Grotrian, director of the University's
Office of Financial Aid.
IN ORDER to offset the federal cuts,
