This directory lists 1,207 student financial aid programs or other services designed primarily or exclusively for veterans, military personnel, and their dependents. An introduction provides a sample entry and explains how to use the directory. The section on financial aid programs is organized, first, by type of aid scholarship, fellowship or grant, loan, grant-in-aid, award, or internship and then by recipient veteran, military personnel, or dependent. Program descriptions list the name and address of the sponsoring organization, the defined purpose, eligibility requirements, financial data (dollars granted), duration, number of awards granted annually, and application deadline. Another section on state benefits includes a list of state financial aid offices, student loan programs, and state veteran agencies. An annotated bibliography of financial aid directories is organized according to type of aid. Included also are several indexes: program title, sponsoring organization name, residency requirements, tenability (geographic locations where the programs listed may be used) requirements, subject (type of program), and calendar index (application filing dates).
