Overview

Finally! Prestigious scholarships and fellowships for doing good! This is the "make a difference" generation and all over America high school and college students are rolling up their sleeves and devoting their time and energy to causes they believe in. And like most students, they could use some extra money when heading to college-so why not take advantage of the many scholarships available for doing community service?

Making a Difference Scholarships is a unique guide written especially for caring students. The guide lists distinguished scholarships awarded for social service, "social entrepreneur" funds for young people who start their own non-profits, college-based service scholarships, and fellowships for studies such as labor, peace, and the environment.

While most scholarship guides are filled with obscure small scholarships that very few students are eligible for, anyone doing community service anywhere in the U.S. can try for most "making a difference" scholarships. Many of these scholarships are exceptionally large-in the $5,000 to $10,000 range. And winners of these awards substantially increase their chances of being admitted to the college of their choice.

Today's students really deserve honors for their acts of community building and environmental stewardship! A wonderful gift for students who care and a great companion guide to Making a Difference College and Graduate Guide.

Author Biography: Miriam Weinstein has been active in environmental and social causes since her teens. She has been publishing the Making a Difference College Guide since 1992. Weinstein is a graduate of the New College of California and lives in San Anselmo, California.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Now in a thoroughly revised, updated and expanded second edition, Miriam Weinstein's Making A Difference: Scholarships For A Better World continues to be one of the most "user friendly" scholarship/fellowship resource guide books available for use by students, volunteers, activists, community organizers, and environmentalists seeking financial support to further their education or to fund their organizational work in the fields of labor, peace, environmental studies, and other community enhancing endeavors. This compendium of information for high school and public service awards; undergraduate scholarships; post-graduate fellowships; community-based grants; and social entrepreneur funds is a seminal reference that should be acquired by every school, community service, and public library system in the country.
