  1. Hi all! Did anyone who got in with a fellowship/funding reject their offer? I was hoping more funding would have been reallocated to admitted students as of now, but no word yet...
  2. Looking for some insight on my specific situation, if anyone has any thoughts! I have to make a decision between the MPP at HKS and the MPA at Columbia University. My situation is that I got a partial fellowship at HKS, and a full tuition fellowship at Columbia. As an international student, taking out loans is quite tricky, so I'm leaning towards choosing Columbia.However, HKS is still my first choice, so I'm wondering if anyone has any comments about this scenario. Is HKS really that much better than Columbia, and would sacrificing a full tuition fellowship be worth it? Or... are there
  3. I have to make a somewhat similar decision between the MPP at HKS and the MPA at Columbia University, so thought I'd comment on this thread as well! Have you decided yet? Please let us know what was your final decision, but indeed, I tend to agree that the larger the funding package, the better, especially considering that Princeton is an amazing school. If anyone can provide some support, my situation is that I got a partial fellowship at HKS, and a full tuition fellowship at Columbia. As an international student, taking out loans is quite tricky, so I'm leaning towards choosing Columbia..
  4. Just wanted to thank you for this message!!! I didn't get much funding from HKS but I'm holding on to this possibility of more scholarships becoming available before we have to accept/decline our offers. If anyone hears back about this, please let us know!
  5. I got into Harvard Kennedy School (MPP) and Columbia SIPA (MPA), but received 60k of funding for SIPA and 25k for Harvard... As an international student, I really can't take any loans, but wondering what you all think. Is HKS that much better than SIPA in terms of experience, or are they similar?

  7. that's amazing! How did you get a full ride without a fellowship, if I may ask? Was it with an external scholarship?
  8. have CPL fellowships been announced??
  9. Is it an email then or a letter on the portal?? haven't checked yet
  10. HKS just posted on their Instagram that financial aid awards will be released today as well!!
  11. I'm in the exact same boat! Got good funding for the 2-year degree at SIPA, but no word about financial aid for the dual degree... Let me know how negotiating goes, I may do the same as you
  12. Thanks so much!! No worries, I actually didn't know the cohort was this small... I'm international (as the username says), my GPA is 9.5/10, I have 2 years of work experience in public policy and around 5/6 in nonprofit work Hope this helps somehow!
  13. I didn't but I am in Latin America...
  14. I don't know about these other programs, but I was also admitted to the dual degree between Sciences Po and SIPA, which is super exciting -- it seems like a great program! However, to my knowledge there is no funding for the dual degree specifically, or is there? If we got funding for SIPA alone, could that be used on the dual degree?
  15. good to see a thread about the Oxford MPP! So I guess we will know next week? And then if we are accepted, that's when we apply for funding? Despite the general scholarships you could apply with your MPP app.
