The new 27th edition of Scholarships, Fellowships, and Loans is now available in the Gale Virtual Reference Library database. This long-standing reference work is a one-stop resource detailing thousands of sources of education-related financial aid and awards at all levels of study written especially for professionals, students, parents, counselors and others interested in education. This annually updated resource provides sources of scholarships, fellowships, loans, internships, work study, and other education-related financial aid at all levels of study. Look for the section on federal financial aid for a quick summary of programs sponsored by the federal government.
Also included is a state-by-state listing of agencies that users can contact in their home state. Five handy indexes help you quickly locate the information you need – Field of Study, Legal Resident, Place of Study, Special Recipient, Sponsor and Scholarship. Each edition of Scholarships, Fellowships and Loans provides details on more than 5,700 awards from 3,500 sponsoring organizations. Entries typically include: sponsoring organization name; full contact information, including Web site and e-mail address (where available); financial aid program statistics, including required level of study, type of assistance available, criteria for application, funds available and number of
awards offered; and much more.
