Cash is always a great gift for graduates with a doctorate degree. The cash can help the graduate pay any personal bills he may have while waiting to land a job. In addition to paying personal bills, the cash can help the graduate pay back any student loans he may have accrued during his undergraduate and graduate years of study.

Some graduates have to relocate after completing their doctorate degree of study to find sufficient work and the cash will help the graduate cut the cost of any moving expenses he may have.
