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!

Grant for women working in science & humanities intersection, Apply by Oct. 11

A new grant program at MIT will encourage and support projects at the intersection of science and the humanities. The Ada Lovelace Grant is sponsored jointly by MIT’s Program in Science, Society, and Technology and the MIT Libraries and generously funded by donors. Each year, one recipient will receive up to $10,000 to support a project using technology to make historical materials accessible and engaging to people outside the academy. Given the enormous gender gap in technology in general and sciences in particular, this grant will be reserved for women enrolled in graduate programs at MIT. The deadline for the 2016–17 academic year is October 11, 2016.
