Schlachter, Gail Ann; Weber, R. David
A directory of scholarships, fellowships, loans, awards, grants-in-aid, and internships designed for veterans, military personnel, and their dependents is presented. The aid programs cover applicants from high school to postdoctoral levels for programs involving research, travel, education, training, career development, or emergency situations. Each listing provides information on the purpose of the financial award, eligibility, amounts or range of funds offered, expenses to which funds may be applied, cash-related benefits supplied, period for which support is provided, number of recipients per year, the deadline, and the sponsoring agency address and telephone number. State sources of information on educational benefits for residents are identified by type of support (state financial aid and guaranteed student loan programs). An annotated listing of 75 key directories provides information on additional sources of financial aid. Included are indexes for program title, sponsoring agency, geographic location, subject, and calendar that enable the reader to locate particular financial aid programs or types of aid; programs sponsored by a particular agency; programs open to residents of a particular state, city, or county; and programs by subject area.
