"A landmark resource."
By Gail A. Schlachter and R. David Weber.
356 pages, hardcover
What Makes This Book Unique?
If you are an American of Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Filipino, or other Asian ancestry, this is the financial aid directory for you. Described here are nearly 950 scholarships, fellowships, grants, awards, and other sources of funding--representing billions of dollars--open specifically to Asian Americans. This money can be used to support a whole range of activities, including:
- creative activities
- future projects
- professional development
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 your meet the program requirements).
What's Covered in the Directory?
No other directory--in print or online--comes close to providing the kind of comprehensive coverage you'll find here! The listings represent every major subject area, are sponsored by hundreds of different private and public agencies and organizations, and are open to Asian Americans at any level, from high school and college through professional and postdoctoral.
What Information is Provided in the Book?
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, type of 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-volume Minority Funding Set. Each volume in the set focuses on a different minority group. Financial Aid for Asian Americans can be purchased separately or at a discounted price as part of this set.

What Do the Reviewers Say?
There is no other financial aid directory like this one; this is the only resource available that focuses solely on funding opportunities open specifically to Asian Americans. That's why Reference Books Bulletin called this title a "landmark resource" and selected it as their "Editor's Choice." And, the Grantsmanship Center concluded the book is "a must for every organization serving minorities." Perhaps Choice sums up the critical reaction best: "a unique and valuable resource; highly recommended." Want to read more reviews? Click here.
