Why Use This Book?
If you are a Native American (American Indian, Native Alaskan, Native Hawaiian, Native Samoan, or other Native Pacific Islander) who is looking for financial aid, this is the directory for you. Described here are more than 1,400 scholarships, fellowships, grants, and awards--representing billions of dollars--open specifically to Native 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 money (provided, of course, that you 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 support every major subject area, are sponsored by hundreds of private and public agencies and organizations, and are open to Native Americans at any level, from high school and college through professional and postdoctoral.
What Information Is Provided?
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-volume Minority Funding Set. Each volume in the set focuses on a different minority group. Financial Aid for Native Americans can be purchased separately or at a discounted price as part of this set.
