  1. SIPA scholarship negotiation

    This is the link they sent me:
  2. SIPA scholarship negotiation

    The additional amount I intend to request is between 12 and 18k per year...
  3. SIPA scholarship negotiation

    I sent an e-mail to the Financial Aid Office last Friday and they have just answered me. They said that those who want to appeal their funding amount must fill a form by April 9. The problem is that they will respond after April 15. So, I would have to pay the enrollment fee to secure my place before knowing my final financial aid package, which sounds a bit odd. In my particular case, I received some funding from SIPA and secured some more from external sources. All I need now to attend SIPA is a 50% increase in the scholarship amount I was originally offered. Does anyone have an opinion about how realistic is this request? I do not have any other award letter so far, as I have only applied to SIPA and HKS.
  4. SIPA MPA 2018

    I was admitted in the early action with partial funding. I had also applied for other sources of funding from the Columbia University (not directly from SIPA, like the International Fellows Program) and I was expecting to see the results the same day as the regular decisions were released. I have not seen any change in my application status though. Should I assume that I have been rejected?
