Computer and IT Training Tuition Scholarships for Federal and State Employees
Most Federal and State employees want to improve their computer/IT skills.
However, high cost of training and a busy schedule have held them back.
Now, the National Education Foundation (NEF) CyberLearning, a non-profit
organization, dedicated to bridging the "Digital Divide," offers Federal
and State employees a unique opportunity. With the support of Microsoft and others,
NEF CyberLearning is now able to offer full tuition scholarships, valued at $2,000,
to the first 5,000 applicants, thus enabling them to take any or all of the 500+
Internet-based online Personal Computing and Computer Professional courses
from anywhere at any time.
The high-quality, user-friendly courses are either self-study or instructor-led.
They cover all levels and almost all topics, including Computer Basics,

A registrant receives immediate access to all 500+ online courses,
an online library of the latest 1,000+ computer/information technology books,

"I have found the CyberLearning online courses to be extremely easy and useful.
I liked pre-course self-assessment and IT books online and available 24/7. The
course screens were interactive and made me feel as if I was in the application
itself. The site looks and feels very professional. The list of courses is huge.
It includes something for almost everyone. I find this to be a very worthy cause."
--- Ken Horowitz, IT Training Coordinator
