The ultimate directory to thousands of scholarships for undergraduates has sold more than 1 million copies. No student or parent can afford to overlook these financial opportunities.

To offset staggering education costs, nearly all students today need assistance. Over half of college financial aid comes from the private sector. From the world's largest private-sector financial aid database, Cassidy identifies:
-- 4,000 private-sector scholarship sources
-- 400,000 private-sector awards worth over 2 billion dollars
-- Awards up to $40,000 per year
-- Specific tuition savers and advice for how to apply

In the competition for valuable college aid, this guide provides a distinct advantage over the others. Cassidy offers solid data on the benefits of private-sector scholarships, from earning multiple scholarships to which scholarships are renewable year-to-year.

Organized in an easy-to-find format, The Scholarship Book 2001 makes the overwhelming world of private-sector funding manageable and beneficial to all types of students, regardless of grades, financial status, or school attending.
