The AMERICAN RED CROSS announces that a program of American Red Cross scholarship aid has been established as one means of increasing the number of qualified medical and psychiatric social workers available for Army and Navy hospitals and medical and psychiatric units. These scholarships will be granted to selected persons interested in training for these fields of social work offering approved curricula in medical or psychiatric work.

Candidates may designate the school of their choice from the approved list. The aid will cover one academic year—two semesters or three quarters. Upon completion of training the scholarship student will be expected to fulfil an agreement for two years' employment with the American National Red Cross.

Candidates must be between 22 and 40 years of age, in good physical health, and must have personality qualifications which indicate a likelihood of success in their chosen fields of work. Educational requirements include the successful completion of one academic year of work in an accredited graduate school of social work. The employment agreement of two years assumes that the service will be within the continental limits of the United States unless a student volunteers for Insular or Foreign Service.

The scholarships provide full tuition and an allowance of $65 a month for maintenance. Application forms may be obtained by writing to area assistant directors of the Military and Naval Welfare Service, Hospital Service or the Personnel Training Unit, Services to the Armed Forces, American Red Cross, National Headquarters, Washington, D. C.

Area office addresses are as follows: North Atlantic Area: 300 Fourth Avenue, New York City. Eastern Area: 615 North St. Asaph Street, Alexandria, Va. Midwestern Area: 1709 Washington Avenue, St. Louis, Mo. Pacific Area: Civic Auditorium, San Francisco, Calif.
