Hawaii State Dept. of Education, Honolulu. Office of Instructional Services.
Information on 522 sources of financial aid for students in Hawaii is presented by field of study. Five major types of financial aid are described: scholarships, grants, loans, work-study programs, and benefits from the Veterans Administration and rehabilitation programs. Sixty-five fields of study are covered. For each source of aid, information is provided on: where to apply, eligibility rules, the grant amount and number of awards, student level, geographic/institutional eligibility, and field of study. Included are an alphabetical index and a cross reference index, which identifies each financial aid resource by field of study. A brief summary of significant trends and changes in the administration of financial assistance is provided, including: educational expenses have risen sharply but more students are seeking higher education; the federal government has decreased its investments of large sums for student financial aid; there is a growing practice to award financial aid on the basis of a student's actual need; and more colleges are allocating funds to students in the form of "package" aid, combinations of scholarship or grant, work-study, and loan.
