Why Do You Need This Book?
There has never been a better time to work on an undergraduate or graduate degree in engineering. According to a recent study conducted by CareerBuilder.com, students graduating with an engineering degree received the highest starting average salary of any group ($46,241 for those with a bachelor's degree--even more for those with an advanced degree)!
That's the good news. Here's the bad: it's expensive to get a college degree. It can costs $60,000+ to get an undergraduate degree and $100,000 or more for some graduate and professional degrees. But, don't despair. Money's available to help you pay your college bills.
How can you find out about available funding? Turn to Reference Service Press's newest title, How to Pay for Your Degree in Engineering (formerly issued as RSP Funding for Engineering Students). The 2011-2012 edition offers the most comprehensive listing of scholarships, fellowships, grants, awards, and prizes available to undergraduate and graduate students majoring in engineering. In all, more than 970 funding opportunities are covered here. That's more than four times the number of engineering-related programs listed in any other financial aid source.
What Information Is Provided?
Now, in just one place, you can find out about the biggest and best funding opportunities (nothing under $1,000) set aside specifically to support study, research, creative activities, past accomplishments, future projects, and travel for both undergraduate and graduate engineering students. And, best of all, this is "free" money; not one dollar will ever need to be repaid if program requirements are met!
Completely up to date, each of the program descriptions in How to Pay for Your Degree in Engineering is prepared from current material supplied by the sponsoring organization.
