Info on ways to fund your degree is scattered throughout the forum. Also, some of the info is outdated - so let's try to gather all possible info on how to survive the crushing costs that come with pursuing our dreams. Completed with links, deadlines, possible grant amount - the works. I'll try to gather what ever info anyone can gather to the top of the thread so everyone can find the info without scanning through the whole thread. Figuring various ways to finance our degrees is one of the biggest steps for all of us so let's crunch the numbers and beat the beast! Sharing is caring!
