Schlachter, Gail Ann; Weber, R. David
This reference directory offers information about 1,358 funding opportunities (scholarships, fellowships, loans, grants, awards, and internships) open to Americans interested in research, creative, professional, or related activities abroad. Following an introduction describing the purpose and arrangement of the book, there are two main sections. The first is a descriptive list of financial programs established to support research and creative activities abroad. These are divided into four chapters aimed at specific population groups: high school/undergraduate students, graduate students, postdoctorates, and professionals/other individuals. Each entry appears alphabetically by program title, followed by the sponsoring institution, purpose, eligibility, financial data, duration of the program, limitations, number of grants/loans awarded, and the deadline for applying. The second section is an annotated bibliography of general financial aid directories, divided into five sections: scholarships, fellowships, and loans; grants; awards and prizes; internships; and financial assistance to special population groups. The book contains five indexes: program title, sponsoring organization, geographic, subject, and calendar. (RH)
