This compilation of scholarships and fellowships is the second which has been made by the United States Office of Education. The first compilation was published in 1931 and treated the subject in a manner similar to that used in the present bulletin. Information of this type, however, needs frequent revision, as changes are constantly taking place in the form of student aid represented by scholarships and fellowships, existing funds undergoing modification, and new funds being created. This bulletin indicates institutions at which scholarships and fellowships are available and gives brief statistical data concerning them, except in the case of State scholarships for which there is given a brief resume of the legal provisions and institutional requirements for their award. The data for individual institutions contained in the tables in this bulletin were obtained by means of a questionnaire, a copy of which was sent to all the institutions of higher learning--1,662--listed in the Educational Directory (part III), 1935, of the Office of Education. Practically all of the larger institutions, both publicly and privately supported, answered the questionnaire. The bulletin is divided into six parts, as follows: (I) Summary of the statistical data contained in Parts II, III, IV, and V; (II) State Scholarships; (III) Scholarships and fellowships available at State-supported higher educational institutions, 1934-35; (IV) Scholarships and fellowships available at municipally supported institutions, 1934-35; and (V) Scholarships and fellowships available at privately endowed institutions, 1934-35. A copy of the questionnaire is appended. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 14 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
