Graduate school is an expensive endeavour. With tuition fees, books, and living expenses, students and their families can find themselves counting every penny they have in order to cover the cost of their education. There are a lot of different graduate schools out there with varying price tags on their admission processes, scholarships available for them, and even room and board. The truth is that many graduate schools offer fully funded scholarships to their students.
