Financial aid for the disabled and their families, 1990-1991.


Financial Aid for the Disabled and Their Families provides comprehensive information in a single source about the nearly 950 resources set aside specifically for the disabled or members of their family...

It presents more than 1,200 references and cross-references to scholarships, fellowships, loans, grants, awards, internships, state sources of benefits, and general financial aid directories.

The Directory is divided into four separate sections: a descriptive list of financial aid programs designed primarily or exclusively for the disabled and their families; a list of state sources of benefits; an annotated bibliography of directories listing general financial aid programs; and a set of five indexes.

"Financial Aid Programs Designed for the Disabled and Their Families," the first section of the directory, provides nearly 950 references and cross-references to a surprisingly wide variety of financial aid programs designed primarily or exclusively for the disabled and their families. The programs described are sponsored by federal and state government agencies, professional organizations, foundations, educational associations, and military/veterans organizations. They are open to applicants at any level (high school through postdoctoral) for such activities as education, research, travel, training, career development, or innovative effort. All areas of the sciences, social sciences, and humanities are covered.
