Scholarships for Graduate School

Over the past week or so, I have spoken to a lot of students about scholarships for graduate school/programs! This has been both surprising and great, and of course after those conversations, it immediately led to me creating this short list of scholarships for graduate school.

Graduate school can range from being very necessary to a nice addition to an undergraduate degree depending on your area of study/intended career. However, whichever it is for you, there is no doubt that when you add these costs to the cost of an undergrad degree, it can definitely get expensive. So, without further ado (as I always say in these posts), here are some great scholarships for graduate school!
