Why Use This Book?
If you are an American with Mexican, Puerto Rican, Cuban, or other Latin American/Spanish origins, this is the financial aid directory for you. Described here are the 1,175 biggest and best scholarships, fellowships, grants, and awards--representing billions of dollars--open specifically to Hispanic Americans. This money can be used to support a whole range of activities, including:
Even better: all this is "free" money! Not one of the programs covered here will ever require you to pay back any funds (provided, of course, that you meet the program requirements).
What Information Is Provided?
No other directory--in print or online--comes close to providing the kind of comprehensive coverage you'll find here! The listings cover every major subject area, are sponsored by hundreds of private and public agencies and organizations, and are open to Hispanic Americans at any level, from high school and college through professional and postdoctoral.
How is the Directory Organized?
Finding the money you need has never been easier. The directory has been designed so you can quickly identify available funding by specific subject, sponsor, title, residency requirements, where the money can be spent, educational level, and deadline date. Plus, every piece of information is here that you'll need to decide if a funding opportunity is right for you: purpose, eligibility, financial data, duration, special features, limitations, number awarded, and deadline date. You even get fax numbers, toll-free numbers, e-mail addresses, and web sites, along with complete contract information.
This directory has been prepared as part of RSP's four-volumeMinority Funding Set. Each volume in the set focuses on a different minority group. Financial Aid for Hispanic Americans can be purchased separately or at a discounted price as part of this set.
