Financial Aid for Research, Study, Travel, and Other Activities Abroad, 1990-1991.
Schlachter, Gail Ann; Weber, R. David
Information is provided about more than 1,700 funding opportunities open to Americans interested in research, study, travel, professional, or other activities abroad. The directory is divided into three separate sections: a descriptive list of financial aid programs established to support research, study, travel, and other activities abroad; an annotated bibliography of directories listing general financial aid programs; and a set of five indexes. The programs described are sponsored by more than 550 government agencies, professional organizations, foundations, educational associations, corporations, research centers, libraries, and other public and private agencies. Entries cover all areas of the sciences, social sciences, and humanities, and are grouped into the following four chapters: high school/undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctorates, and professionals/other individuals. Each of these chapters is further divided into four type-of-activity categories: study, research, travel, and other activities. Each program entry supplies program title, organization address and telephone number, purpose, eligibility, remuneration, duration, special features, limitations, number of awards, and application deadline. An annotated bibliography lists 60 key directories published in 1980 or later that describe United States programs supporting research, study, and travel, and that may, incidentally, support activities abroad.
