Do you think it's possible for me to negotiate stipends with some schools? For example, both UChicago and Columbia University offer stipends greater than the $30,000 the NSF offers. Both schools are willing to present me with an additional stipend as an incentive to attend school there. I have a lot of debt from my undergraduate education and it would really help me... so how can I ask them without sounding like a cheapo?
I posted this in the chemistry forum (and not "The Bank") because I'd like the opinion of other chem. grad students.

I looked into it a bit when I accepted mine, and from what I recall, it wasn't possible, but I don't remember whether it was institutional or NSF prohibited. I think it was from the NSF guidelines, but not positive. Most major fellowships prevent doubling up.
::edit:: Here's the discussion on it from last year.
