Other scholarships and awards can be found in reference volumes
such as Scholarships, Fellowships and Loans edited by Debra M. Kirby
and Financial Aids for Higher Education by Oreon Keeslar. These
books describe national, state and regional scholarship programs
and give information about application processes. These volumes
and others are available in the University Library.
Information can also be gathered from professional associations,
business organizations, church and religious foundations or other
special interest groups such as community service clubs. Each program
will have its own deadlines and application procedures.
