As a graduate student, you know that graduate school is a financially challenging time, even though you receive a stipend. Grad students often struggle to understand their pay, manage their spending effectively, calculate their taxes, and decide whether to prioritize their lifestyle, investing, or paying down debt. You are in need of a resource created precisely for you that you can quickly and easily use in your financial life.
“The Graduate Student’s Guide to Personal Finance” by Dr. Emily Roberts is an 80-minute comprehensive video seminar on personal finance for graduate students who receive stipends. It covers all the most important subjects that graduate students need to know to achieve financial success during graduate school and after. The video is in voice-over-slides format; it covers a great deal of material at a fast pace.
The major sections of this seminar are:
- values, goals, and strategies
- grad student pay and taxes
- the power of compound interest
- emergency funds
- tax-advantaged retirement accounts
- debt evaluation and repayment
