Scholarships and Financial Assistance: A Directory for Migrant High School Students and Counselors.
Morse, Susan C.
A directory of 87 scholarships and financial assistance programs available to migrant high school students provides general information about the programs and gives contacts for applications. An introduction discusses types of financial assistance, how to apply for financial aid, college costs, and examples of scholarships awarded to migrant students in Arizona. The directory lists assistance programs by subject of award or recipient--migrant, ethnic, disadvantaged, minorities in specific fields of study--and by source--federal, federal assistance in health-related fields, and private college/universities. It also provides addresses of United States Department of Education regional offices and state educational agencies. Entries describing assistance programs typically include address, purpose, eligibility, financial data, deadlines, and duration. A discussion of financial assistance at private colleges/universities gives reasons why migrant students might consider these institutions, lists 14 private universities and the 8 Ivy League schools, and provides a form outlining a sample financial aid award from Yale University.
