Financial Aid: A Partial List of Resources for Women.
Association of American Colleges, Washington, DC. Project on the Status and Education of Women.
The resource paper serves as a guide to selected financial aid information for women students. While some of the resources and programs described apply to graduate and graduate students of both sexes, many are geared toward the needs of older women, returning students, minority women, and those in professional and technical programs. Presently over $11 billion is available to students through financial aid programs administered by federal and state government, schools, foundations, corporations, local businesses, trade and professional associations, and civic organizations. These sources provide scholarships, grants, and loans. Many schools and colleges also offer work-study programs that provide financial aid in the form of wages for college-based work. The publications and programs reported are categorized by undergraduate and graduate-level aid, with special classifications, such as athletic scholarships and occupational training grants, listed separately. A section on financial aid for minority women is included, followed by a discussion of state and federal student aid and a listing of selected government programs. Last, there is an additional list of selected publications describing financial aid programs. Most of the publications in this section are available in college and public libraries, and in high school and college financial aid, guidance and/or counseling offices. (Author)
