I am a great fan of ActiveWords and use it daily. Today I saw this on the ActiveWords website.
ActiveWord Systems offers a free four year ActiveWords SE* license to all college and university students in the United States.
ActiveWords SE is exactly the same as the commercial product ActiveWords PLUS, with these exceptions; (1) ActiveWords SE does not include scripting, (2) ActiveWords SE includes access to a more limited set of free add-in applications.
