This publication is a handbook of scholarships and fellowships available in colleges and universities of the United States. Information regarding scholarships and fellowships available at institutions of higher learning in the United States is of vital interest to many thousands of students. While several lists of the scholarship offerings for students interested in advanced study and research have been compiled by educational organizations, no attempt has been made to bring together similar information for the use of undergraduate students. The present study was therefore undertaken to supply this slack. It is more comprehensive than previous studies, inasmuch as it indicates offerings in both the undergraduate and graduate fields. The study was made from data obtained from college catalogues (including those of law, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, and theology, but not teachers' colleges and normal schools), verified and augmented by the institutions themselves by means of a questionnaire, copies of which were sent to all institutions of higher learning in the United States. It contains the scholarship offerings at 402 institutions, including practically all of the larger colleges and universities, which have a preponderance of the scholarships and fellowships available, and a fair proportion of those at smaller institutions. An index is included. Individual sections contain footnotes. (Contains 12 tables.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
