Overview

You can never make too much money, or be too far along in college, or be too old to qualify for financial aid. The trick is to find the right programs. We've done that for you here.

Described in this unique directory are more than 1,200 merit scholarships and other no-need funding programs available specifically to students already in college or students thinking about returning to college. This is your chance to get money for college based solely on your academic record, research skills, writing ability, creative activities, religious or ethnic background, organizational or military activities, athletic success, career plans, or just pure luck in random drawings! Income is never considered.

Finding merit and other no-need funding for college has never been easier. You can locate programs by discipline, specific subject, program title, sponsoring organization, where you live, where you want to study, and closing date. Plus, every piece of information is here that you'll need to decide if a program is right for you: purpose, eligibility requirements, financial data, duration, special features, limitations, number awarded, and deadline date. You even get fax numbers, toll-free numbers, and e-mail addresses, along with complete contact information.

Here's a sample of the kinds of programs listed in the directory: $6,000 for juniors and seniors majoring in physical or occupational therapy; $10,000 for students in college preparing for a career in food service or hospitality; $5,000 for sophomores interested in journalism or broadcasting; $5,000 for pre-med or pre-law students; and $2,000 for college cartoonists.

Includes a directory of state benefit offices, an annotated bibliography of financial aid directories, and thorough indexing by program title, sponsoring organization, residency, tenability, subject, and calendar (for identification of deadline dates).
