Financial information for graduate students

Would you like a little extra help in figuring out the ins and outs of your financial landscape as a grad student?  Here are a few resources:

Workshops

The OGE offers a series of workshops this fall, from “Applying for Graduate Fellowships” (its never too early to think about it!) to “Intro to Investing” and more. Free pizza! RSVPs requested.

iGrad

MIT sponsors a completely free iGrad Financial Literacy platform (offered in collaboration with the MIT Federal Credit Union). It’s customized with videos, articles, games, 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. and is a great financial literacy tool for students and the MIT community in general. Create your own profile for a tailored experience!

Other online tools

On the OGE website, we’ve added a new Financial Literacy section and have updated the fellowships section, including the “tips” content.  Check it out!
