The Greek term for philosophy, or philosophia, means “love of wisdom.” So, it’s no surprise that students pursuing a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) postgraduate degree must have a passion for learning and continuing their education. Many PhD students have a full schedule with course work, graduate training, and working on their dissertation, which leaves little time for a job to help pay for graduate school. That’s why it’s important to look to university, organizational, and professional group scholarships to help cover tuition and the cost of living.
