An additional stipend is given to all fellows through the award of a Graduate Assistantship, allowing the student to gain valuable experience by doing research for 20 hours per week in the Department of Education Reform.
Many other avenues for financial assistance exist as well. More information can be obtained from Funding Your Graduate Degree (include link to http://grad.uark.edu/recruit/funding/index.html).

Hi. E-learning training courses in some companies and websites do offer scholarships for their students. But in most cases, it actually depends if the student is able to meet the required credentials for them to avail scholarship grants. Some schools and universities offer as well such programs for their students like financial aids and scholarships for online learning courses.
