Why Do You Need This Book?
With the looming shortage of teachers, there has never been a better time to get a degree in education. An even bigger plus: there has never been as much financial aid available as there is today. Billions of dollars have been set aside just to support undergraduate and graduate students who want to prepare for a career in preschool education, K-12 education, adult education, special education, educational administration, school librarianship, and the specialty fields of art education, music education, physical education, etc.
But how can you find out about this money? How to Pay for Your Degree in Education & Related Fields makes it easy! The completely updated and expanded 2011-2013 edition has done the research for you. Described here are more than 930 grants, scholarships, fellowships, and awards available to students working on an education-related degree. And, these programs are the biggest and best available. To be included here, a program has to offer at least $1,000 per year--but 90 percent of the entries go way beyond that, offering up to $20,000 or more annually or covering all of your educational expenses. Even better: this is all "free" money--not one dollar will ever need to be repaid!
