Teams trial licenses

In response to an increased need for people to work remotely (or work from home), Microsoft has several free Teams trial offers for government, educational, and non-profit organizations:

  • Office 365 E1 Trial - including Teams, is a free 6-month E1 license for any customer that's managed by a Microsoft account rep. It's for organizations - including nonprofits - who haven't activated any other Office 365 E1 trials in the past.

  • For GCC, check out the Office 365 G1 Trial.

  • EDU customers should use the free Office 365 A1 license.
