There are numerous directories and publications about scholarships and financial aid at the bookstore or library in your community.

Scholarship Directories
Scholarship directories are designed to help students identify various sources of scholarships and financial aid to help pay for their education. When reviewing the scholarship directories, make sure you review the most recent editions since scholarship guidelines, eligibility requirements, and deadlines often change. There are also scholarship directories specifically for minorities, women, sports/athletics, and students with disabilities.

College Directories
College directories profile various colleges, universities, community colleges, vocational, and technical schools. These directories contain complete contact information, programs offered, sports, extracurricular activities, and a lot more. More importantly, some directories will list the type of financial aid offered by the school, eligibility requirements, and amounts awarded.

Industry Directories
Professional associations offer information about their scholarship and internship opportunities within their industry’s association publication. Each career field has a directory with a complete listing of corporations, companies, professional organizations, and industry groups. Contact some of the companies and organizations in the industry you are interested in pursuing as a career and inquire about any scholarships offered by that company or organization to students.

If you still have time to devote to your scholarship search, go to the library and consult Gale's Encyclopedia of Associations. It lists the names and contact information of professional associations, industry groups, ethnic societies, religious groups, and advocacy groups for minorities, women, and the disabled. Make a list of all the companies and organizations that have a connection with your field of study, and contact them. Many of their scholarships are not publized; you will be surprised as to what scholarships are available.
