As far as I know, the only book that specifically addressed this was the one my daughter and I did, Finding Money for College, now sadly both out of print and out of date, with no prospects for revival that I can see.

Probably the most positive feedback came from readers who pursued small foundation grants, using the Gale book "Foundation Grants for Individuals." A lot of gratifying letters from people who got grants of $5,000 to $50,000 to cover their Master's or Doctoral work. Main drawback is that the process is slow; many foundations make grants only once a year, and have a fairly long lead time for applying.
