Schlachter, Gail Ann; Weber, R. David
This directory provides current information about over 1,000 funding opportunities (scholarships, fellowships, loans, grants, awards, and internships) open to Americans interested in structured or independent study abroad. The directory is divided into three separate sections: a descriptive list of financial aid programs established to support study and training abroad; an annotated bibliography of directories listing general financial aid programs; and a set of five indexes. The first portion describes the financial aid programs which include formal academic classes, training courses, degree-granting programs, independent study, seminars, workshops, and student internships abroad. The profiles are grouped in four chapters aimed at specific population groups: (1) high school and undergraduate students; (2) graduate students; (3) postdoctorates; and (4) professional or other individuals. Within each chapter entries appear alphabetically by program title. The annotated bibliography of general financial aid directories lists 60 key directories published in the 1990's that describe domestic programs and resources available for use in the United States. The directories are listed by type of program and each entry contains basic bibliographic information and an annotation specifying scope, arrangement, publication history, and special features. The directory contains five indexes, a program title index, a sponsoring organization index, a geographic index, a subject index, and a calendar index. (PRW)
