Military-Connected News

iGrad—NYU's Everyday Financial Education Resource

NYU would like to make military-connected students aware of the launch of iGrad, an online educational platform that provides access to articles, videos, and modules designed to promote financial education.  The materials cover topics from financial aid, repaying student loans, strategies to save money and invest, to tips on conducting a job search.

To help you get started we have listed below the five iGrad articles that we think might be the most relevant to military-connected students and veterans:

1.  "We Want You! Scholarships for Students with Military Connections"

2.  "Frequently Asked Questions About Transferred Military Education Benefits"

3.   "Finding Resources for Veterans - Help is Out There"

4.  "5 Good Reasons For Military Students to Confront Personal Debt"
