Mention "college" to the parent of any teen, and stress lines deepen around the mouth while a panicked, wild look forms around the eyes. College tuitions get more and more expensive, and college savings, if such exist, rarely keep pace. But while the kid is busily applying him or herself to SAT preparations (in order to get into a more expensive university), the parent who is going to fork out the money would be well-advised to browse through Cassidy's Scholarship Book. Assistance is out there for the informed applicant. Celebrities like Bill Cosby, Eddie Murphy, and Oprah Winfrey have made big money available for students at Spellman, Howard, and Morehouse Universities. Specific niche scholarships are offered by the Contess of Munster Musical Trust (for Commonwealth citizens studying music) and the International Society of Arboriculture pays the way for students of horticulture and entomology. Children of footwear industry workers can apply for funds from Two/Ten International Footwear Foundation, and there's money for the descendants of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, too. There are scholarships for women and scholarships for men, scholarships based on academic performance and on sports prowess, and for any number of intended majors and careers. This is the best book to drive home the lesson that research pays. --Stephanie Gold
