Following is a sampling of print- and computer-based directories of programs for minorities in science, mathematics, and engineering sponsored by professional societies, federal agencies, and universities. Some programs are not universal in whom they serve, but may vary according to minority or ethnic group, discipline, locale, and age group.

HyperAMP, a three-part multimedia database of more than 1,400 financial aid sources for undergraduates and graduate students; a description of the National Science Foundation's Alliance for Minority Participation Program; and undergraduate-sponsored programs at 10 federal agencies. The database is available on the Internet, CD-ROM, and diskettes. For more information on how to obtain or download HyperAMP, contact Antonio A.
