Today I share a post from the recent archives. This time of year – when many candidates are on the cusp of submitting their application materials – is also the time to be getting serious about your financial plan for grad school. It’s a big task, and you’re not alone if you feel a bit overwhelmed and unsure even of how to begin.
Around this time last year then-current student and now-alumna Samantha shared this account of her own financial planning process, and it remains a good example of a thorough approach to investigating as many potential funding resources as possible, as well as a valuable self-assessment exercise. Interested readers can also dig into a pile of other related posts on the subject that remain relevant today.
It’s fine to take a few breaths after submitting your application, but it’s never too early to begin working on the particulars of your financial plan!
