Financial Aid for MCSE Training Available

U.S. Dept. of Education's FAFSA application is like free money, but deadline is looming.

Remember Skills2000, the loan program that Microsoft once offered to the elderly and U.S. veterans going into IT? How about the AATP program, Microsoft's partnership with accredited colleges providing MOC courses at student prices? Those days are long gone, but students who are looking for financial assistance with their college IT courses can still get help from the U.S. government.

The U.S. Department of Education's Web site offers its Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), The offer is only available U.S. citizens or to non-citizens currently attending a select number of U.S. colleges.

To view the application, go to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/. For questions or general information, you can also call (800) 4-FED-AID (433-3243). The application deadline for the 2002 academic year ends July 1, 2002.

The application is not endorsed by Microsoft. More educational resources are available at http://www.microsoft.com/traincert/aid/default.asp.
