    How would you pay for Graduate School with out taking out Student Loans or personal funding?

    Well, the only other two choices are grants and scholarships, there really isn't any other option.

    I guess you would have to write a grant to some organization that would be interested in funding your education.

    Hi Amwalsh,

    You need to carefully choose scholarships/fellowships that will give you full tuition, medical, books, travel and living expenses' coverage.

    With that said, you should still save up a little money for miscellaneous expenses (5% of total expenses).

    Scholarships and grants like they said. I'm trying to figure out how to maximize my potential in that area right now... Some additional options - complete a year of service with Americorps (recieve a $5500 educational award post-service), work as a graduate assistant or graduate fellow on campus, get a job that pays for continued schooling, or work on a college campus (often you can take 1-2 classes free each semester).
