Training Sources and Finance Assistance

Wee Willie Keeler, a baseball player, hit singles and retired with a career .341 batting average, 14th best in major league history.  His motto, “Hit ‘em where they ain’t”!

And, so should you.

There are many, many sources of funding for college or vocational education, many highly specialized.

Lists are boring.  However, this is to give you a TINY idea of funding available.  If you are the son / daughter of a longshoreman, there may be funds for you!

The idea is to just get you started looking.  Was your mother Irish?  Could be …..

This is just the tip of the iceberg.  So, get to your library and look around.

Financing Your New Skill Training – U.S. Government Source

By:  John Holmgren    TheExpertResumeWriter.com

There are many, many reasons that learning a new skill is critical to your success.  It is true that, for many, it is the most likely path to quality employment.

Whether you need to learn a skill to establish a career or your job went away and you must learn another trade, that means training, and training schools are expensive!

A source of educational funding is the U.S. Department of Education.  Each year more than $150 billion is available in federal aid for students who qualify.

This is a quote from their document, “Federal Student Aid at a Glance 2010 – 12”.  Federal student aid comes from the federal government – specifically, the U.S. Department of Education.  It’s money that helps a student pay for education expenses at a postsecondary school (e.g., college, vocational school, graduate school).

Federal student aid covers such expenses as tuition and fees, room and board, books and supplies, and transportation.  Aid also can help pay for a computer and for dependent care.”

Find the U.S. Department of Education at www.ed.gov.  Look for “Funding” and you will be taken to http://federalstudentaid.gov.  It will provide you with much more information.

To apply for federal student aid, complete Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  On the web go to www.fafsa.gov.  Fill out the application or download a PDF.  For further aid call 1-800-433-3243.

You will find a wealth of information about the program.  Start with “Your Federal Student Loans – Learn the basics and Manage Your Debt”.  Order at www.edpubs.gov.
