The ODGE has recently partnered with the MIT Federal Credit Union to make an online financial literacy platform available to the entire MIT community including our graduate students!
The iGrad platform (link can be found at oge.mit.edu/finances) has been customized for MIT and includes videos, articles, games, a job board, searchable scholarship database, and interactive modules on a wide range of topics, including emergency-funding, credit card management, identity protection, spending-smarts, etc.
To help roll out this exciting new tool, the ODGE is happy to announce a fall semester workshop (and pizza) series for graduate students on various financial literacy topics as part of the ODGE’s larger financial literacy initiative (an MIT news article will be out shortly providing more details on this initiative).
RSVP is required and spots are limited (free pizza!) so RSVP here.
