Financial aid for the disabled and their families, 1996-1998
Millions of dollars in financial aid have been set aside for America's largest minority: the 43 million Americans with disabilities and members of their families. In fact, more money is available today than ever before! This funding is open to applicants at any level (high school through postdoctorate/professional) for study, research, travel, training, career development, emergencies, assistive technology, specially-adapted housing, and many other purposes.
There's only one publication that can put information about these funds at your finger tips: the 1996-1998 edition of Financial Aid for the Disabled and Their Families.
Here are some of the 900 funding programs you'll find described in this directory: up to $10,000 a year for blind undergraduate or graduate students; up to $42,500 in home improvement loans; $2,000 a year to undergraduates with an immune deficiency disease; $5,000 to performing musicians who are physically challenged; up to $500,000 in loans for the disabled to operate small businesses; $3,200 to purchase computers or other assistive equipment.
You also get a list of state sources of benefits (including vocational rehabilitation offices), an annotated bibliography of 60 key directories that can lead you to even more financial aid opportunities, and a set of indexes that let you search the directory by program title, sponsoring organization, geographic coverage, subject field, and application deadline.
This directory was chosen as one of the "outstanding reference books of the year" by the New York Public Library, which praised Reference Service Press for "its excellent contribution in an area of publishing where quality is at a premium".
