Schlachter, Gail Ann; Goldstein, Sandra E.
Information on financial aid programs for women is presented that covers scholarships, fellowships, loans, grants, awards, and internships. Profiles of programs reflect operations in 1987-1988. A total of 1,713 references/cross-references identify aid programs designed primarily or exclusively for women. Program sponsors include government, professional organizations, corporations, sororities/fraternities, foundations, religious groups, and educational associations. Women from high school through postdoctoral levels are eligible to apply for aid for educational, research, travel, training, career development, or innovative effort. The focus is on programs open to American citizens or tenable in the United States. 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 list of 75 key directories published in 1980 or later that both sexes can use to locate additional sources of financial aid is included, along with indexes of program title; eligibility by geographic location (city, state, county, country, or continent); subject; and filing date.
