Appendixes include a Speech Communication Association funding survey, a graphic overview of the funding process, a glossary of basic funding terminology, a list of reference materials on sources of external support, a preliminary outline for writing a proposal, a sample budget summary, the evaluative criteria employed by funding agencies, information on the Public Information Act, a listing of federal agencies, and potential funding sources listed by specific communication discipline areas. A list of references and an index for funding source entries are included. (RL)
