Why should you use this book?
Do you need money to support graduate study or research in:
Librarianship and library/information science
Marketing and sales
or any of the other social or behavioral sciences
In the past, it was difficult to find out about these opportunities. Information about them was either scattered throughout a number of directories or, for many programs, not available at all.
With the publication of the 2010-2012 edition of Money for Graduate Students in the Social & Behavioral Sciences that has all changed. Now, graduate students working on a master's, professional, or doctoral degree in the social sciences can easily find out about the 1,100 biggest and best fellowships, grants, and awards available to support their study, training, research, or creative activities.
Best of all, only "free" money is identified. This is your chance to find out about billions of dollars in aid, knowing that not one dollar of that will need to be repaid (provided, of course, that stated requirements are met)!
What kind of information is included in the directory?
In Money for Graduate Students in the Social & Behavioral Sciences, every piece of information you'll need to decide if a program is right for you is presented here: purpose, eligibility, financial data, duration, special features, limitations, number awarded, and application date. You can even get fax numbers, toll-free numbers, e-mail addresses, and web sites, along with complete contact information.
Since the entries are grouped by type of program (research or study), you'll be able to turn directly to the section that describes the funding you need. Plus, extensive indexing lets you access the programs by subject, residency, where you want to spend the money, sponsor, and even deadline date.
What do the reviewers say?
Now, in one place, you can find all the programs that are available to help you pay for your graduate studies or research in the social or behavioral sciences! That's why the American Reference Books Annual called the directory "a valuable service" and Choice "highly recommended" it! Want to read more reviews?Click here.
