* The FSA Training Conference is a series of training and technical assistance programs provided by the Department of Education for higher education financial aid professionals charged with administering the Title IV student financial assistance programs on their campuses. These programs annually provide more than $150 billion in federal grants, loans, and work-study programs to more than 15 million students attending over 6,000 participating schools. Proper training of the institutions responsible for packaging and disbursing these funds helps ensure the integrity of the Title IV programs and reduces incidence of waste, fraud, abuse and mismanagement in these programs.
