* 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. Each year, these programs provide more than $150 billion in federal grants, loans, and work-study programs to more than 14 million students attending more than 6,000 participating schools. Proper training for professionals at institutions that package and disburse these funds helps ensure the integrity of the Title IV programs and reduces incidence of waste, fraud, abuse and mismanagement in these programs.
