Billions of dollars in financial aid have been set aside for America's largest minority: the more than 50 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 and professional) for study, research, travel, training, career development, assistive technology, specially-adapted housing, tax relief, and many other purposes.
Veterans, military personnel, and their dependents make up more than one third of America's population. Each year, public and private agencies set aside billions of dollars in financial aid for these groups (including the spouses, children, grandchildren, and dependent parents, and siblings of veterans and military personnel). If you have ties to the military, Financial Aid for Veterans, Military Personnel, and Their Dependents is the right book for you.
