If you're planning to attend graduate school sometime in the near future, you'll need a plan to pay for it. Grad school financial aid works a bit differently than undergrad, with more loans available from the federal government and additional opportunities such as fellowships and teaching assistantships. You can learn more about paying for grad school in our post here. One thing that doesn't change from undergrad to grad degrees? The availability of private scholarships. Companies, foundations, associations, and other entities offer free money to help students pay for grad school, and you won't want to miss out on applying for as many of these scholarships as you can. We compiled a list of some opportunities below. Make sure you adhere to all deadlines for full consideration.
