  18. Huber William Hurt, Harriett-Jeanne Hurt and Christian E. Burckel, The College Blue Book -- Scholarships, Fellowships, Grants and Loans, Volume 5, 25th edition, Macmillan Publishing Company, New York, 1995. ISBN 0-02-895147-6 five volume set ($235). ISBN 0-02-895148-4 single-user CD-ROM ($335). ISBN 0-02-895151-4 network CD-ROM ($425). ISBN 0-02-895149-2 five volume set and single-user CD-ROM ($545). ISBN 0-02-895152-2 five volume set and network CD-ROM ($645). Revised every two years. The College Blue Book is a five-volume set that provides information about post-secondary education and financial aid. Volume 5, which is 895 pages long, provides information about scholarships, fellowships, grants, and loans from private and public sources. It includes information about awards for undergraduate students, graduate students, and post-doctoral students. Awards are organized according to discipline, meaning that some listings are repeated.

The book includes award title, sponsor, subject, and education level indexes. The CD-ROM lets you search for awards by subject area, award title, sponsor, and educational level. Volume 5 (ISBN 0-02-895026-7) was previously available separately for $48.00, but this appears to no longer be true.
