This episode deals with the financial impact of undertaking a PhD.

Emily Roberts is a personal finance educator specializing in early-career PhDs based in the U.S.  Emily draws on her own experience as a graduate student to support others to make the most of their money.

In this conversation we talk about the ‘opportunity cost’ of doctoral study and the potential stress of financial pressures.  

We also talk about recognising – and challenging! – the scarcity mindset of academia.

Emily also offers some useful tips for managing your financial situation.
