Drawn from the latest version of RSP's financial aid database, the 2014 edition of Kaplan Scholarships provides detailed information on more than 3,000 of the biggest and best scholarships available to fund education after high school. These programs are open to high school seniors, high school graduates, currently-enrolled college students, and those returning to college after a break. This funding can be used to support study in any area, in junior and community colleges, vocational and technical institutions, four-year colleges, and universities.
What Makes This Directory Unique?
Lots of books list scholarships. What makes Kaplan Scholarships different? Here are just some of the reasons that this directory is unique:
the funding opportunities described here can be used at any number of schools (no single school scholarships are included)
only the biggest funding programs are covered (nothing under $1,000 per year)
not one dollar of the programs listed here needs to be repaid (this is all FREE money!)
the funding opportunities identified are not based just on need or academic record; many of the sources award money because of career plans, writing ability, religious or ethnic background, military or organizations activities, athletic success, or personal characteristics.
No other listing--in print or online--provides this type of coverage!
What Do the Reviewers Say?
This is your one-stop source to billions of dollars in college aid. That's why it has been included in Recommended Reference Books for Small & Medium-sized Libraries, called "an outstanding job" by the National Academy of American Scholars, and given the highest rating by amazon.com customers!
