Graduate School Can Be EXPENSIVE

And whether you've been out on your own and working for a few years or are planning to go straight from college, the options for funding it can seem daunting. 

Our 12-month cohort plan includes "Graduate School Funding Strategies," an online, three-week program that coaches prospective students through the graduate school funding process. Weekly content includes live online sessions, videos (in case you miss the sessions), homework assignments, and resources/tools to help you figure this process out. 


Who Is The Program For?

This program is for those who are entering or preparing for graduate programs in the U.S., whether you are leaving the workforce or going to graduate school straight out of an undergraduate program. 

In order to take full advantage of the course, you should be able to commit to a minimum of 4 hours on course content, pre-work, and homework assignments. The cohort meets online once per week during the 3 weeks, in addition to group office hours/chats to provide additional support.
