National Guide to Funding in Higher Education. Fifth Edition.
Rich, Elizabeth H., Ed.
This directory provides facts on 5,216 foundations, corporate direct-giving programs, and public charities that award grants to higher education projects and institutions. An introduction notes the more precise indexing of the this edition and offers guidelines for grantseeking, sources of grant information, and an analysis of foundation support for higher education. Also included are a glossary, a bibliography of funding in higher education, and a list of resources of the Foundation Center and a list of its cooperating collections. The bulk of the document is comprised of the grantmaker entries, which include data on organizational name, addresses, contact persons, history, source of funds, purpose and activities, fields of interest, financial data, giving priorities, application procedures, and examples of recent grants. Grantmaking organizations are listed alphabetically by organization within state listings. The extensive indexes include an index to donors, officers, and trustees; a geographic index; an index to types of support; two subject indexes (by grantmaker and grant); and an index of grantmaker names.
