To complement our Idealist Grad Fairs, we’ve created this video series to help you navigate the graduate school application and financial aid processes..

Most people going to graduate school take out some student loans to help them cover the cost. In this episode, our experts discuss why you should fill out the FAFSA and apply for federal student loans even if you don’t think you’ll qualify for or need them. Our experts also shed some light on two helpful repayment programs: Income-Based Repayment and Public Service Loan Forgiveness.

If you have more questions, or want to make a personal connection to the graduate schools you’re interested in, attend an Idealist Grad Fair. Held each fall in cities around the country, Idealist Grad Fairs connect prospective students with graduate schools in fields such as public administration, international affairs, education, public policy, public interest law, social work, nonprofit management, global and public health, theology, environmental science, and socially responsible business. The fairs are free and open to anyone interested in learning about grad school.
