Selected List of Postsecondary Education Opportunities for Minorities and Women. 1980 Edition.
Byrd-Johnson, Linda E.; Smith, Carol J.
Postsecondary educational opportunities for minorities and women are listed by subject field. Specific information is provided on loans, scholarships, and fellowship opportunities, along with general information on how and where to get general assistance in preparing for educational and career goals. Addresses of the offices that operate the programs are provided. Opportunities in selected fields of study are listed: architecture, arts and science, business administration and management, education, engineering and science, health and medicine, international study, journalism, law, political science and public administration, psychology, sociology and social work, speech/language pathology and audiology, and theology. It is hoped that this information will serve to encourage more minorities and women to enter these fields of study. General educational opportunities exclusively for women, for American Indians, and with the U.S. military are reported. A Student Consumer's Guide to six federal financial aid programs, including Basic Grants and Guaranteed Student Loans, is also provided. (Author/MSE)
