If you have a good career path mapped out and can convince other people that you will be successful you can actually sell shares in yourself via one of the crowdfunding websites. There is also a new company called Pave where you could raise money by offering a percentage of your future earnings. As an example of how this works, one person recently signed up with Pave in the hope of raising money to pay for an advanced masters degree. If he raises the $30,000 he needs he will then pay back his investors at the rate of 7% of his salary for the next 10 years.
Join the Peace Corps
This may sound a bit on the radical side but if you join the Peace Corps and complete a four-year stint you will earn $7,425 (pre-tax) to help with your transition to life back home. Plus, any payments you have on Stafford, Perkins, direct or consolidated loans will be deferred while you’re in the Corps. And if you have Perkins loans, you could be eligible for a 30% to 70% cancellation benefit meaning that a large portion of your loan could be canceled.
