Private Sector Funding Available to Foreign Scholars and Students in the United States.
Sivon, Ellen Wise
A sourcebook for foreign students and scholars already in the United States who are seeking additional financial resources to complete their U.S. education is presented. These sources of support are mostly available from U.S. private, nonprofit organizations including professional societies, scientific and medical research organizations, scholarly institutes, foundations, and civic organizations. For each of the 38 groups, information is provided on: title and purpose of the award, organizational background, eligibility criteria, the amount and time period of the award, and the application procedure. Criteria by which the organizations were chosen include: the donors offer awards for study by foreign students and scholars primarily in the United States, although some awards provide opportunities to study in another country; the organizations offer awards directly to the individual student or scholar; the organizations offer awards for support of educational programs at undergraduate, graduate, and/or postgraduate levels, including professional research; and a substantial number of the awards are in the social sciences and the natural and life sciences. An index to awards by field of study is appended, along with a bibliography. (SW)
