Hello Graduate Student,
How to fund graduate school is a common question for graduate students. For this month, we invite you to read our GradLife blog post on the nuances of funding your graduate school education. This post covers the varieties of sources of funding, some of the offices and websites which provide more information, and resources on identifying expenses and creating a financial plan. Read our latest GradLIFE blog post to learn more about funding options.
Campus Spotlight
Financial Wellness and Money Management

There are two offices which can help graduate students with budgeting and money management. The USFSCO Student Money Management Center (SMMC) offers badges, webinars and other events on personal financial management topics, as well as consultations.

The University of Illinois Extension Financial Wellness for College Students program offers information, peer educators and referrals.

Campus Landmarks
 Foellinger Auditorium
Foellinger Auditorium
Foellinger Auditorium is one of Illinois' landmark buildings. This iconic building is situated at the south end of the Main Quad and often appears in campus publications. It was designed in the Beaux-Arts style by Charles H. Blackall, a University of Illinois graduate. The building was rededicated in honor of Helene Foellinger, whose generous gift made it possible to substantially renovate the auditorium.
