Have $100k, don't know how to invest, help

I came into 100k, i'm a soon to be PhD student(financial economics). I seriously don't know how to trade and am thinking about long term investments such as S&P 500 Index ETFs or Growth or Income mutual funds and withdrawing a portion of the principal + interest each year to have extra spending cash during PhD studies. I basically know what every finance student should, basics, long/short, reading wall street journal, avoiding whispers, hot stock tips etc. I don't want to risk it by building equity or derivatives portfolios without the proper training.
