  1. Hi prospective Political Science Ph.D. students! We thought we’d create a post to share some information our (somewhat little-known) Ph.D. program. Feel free to ask questions and we’ll reply, or please feel free to email Dan de Kadt (Assistant Professor) or Courtenay Conrad (Associate Professor and Director of Graduate Studies). We’d love to talk to you more about our program. The mission of the Ph.D. program in Political Science at UC Merced is to push forward the boundaries of the discipline and train graduate students to produce sophisticated modern empirical and theoretical research. The rigorous methodological graduate training that students receive at UC Merced places them at the leading edge of the social sciences. We use a unique approach to graduate training, focused on Political Institutions & Political Economy (PIPE) and Political Cognition & Behavior (CAB), guaranteeing that students will have a comprehensive and creative understanding of politics. A recent study of political science in the University of California system found that UC Merced's political science faculty have the highest average rate of research productivity in the entire UC system. Our faculty regularly publish their cutting-edge research in the very best journals and book presses in the discipline. You’ll also note that our faculty collaborate with graduate students, meaning that many of our graduate students are already well published when they enter the market. As a relatively new Ph.D. program we have had eight students complete our program to date. We have had great success in placing our students in jobs both inside and outside academia. Over just the last three market cycles (17/18 – 19/20), our graduates have been invited to interview by phone or on campus for 33 tenure-track academic positions at R1 and R2 research universities (19 interviews), at teaching universities (12), and at community colleges (2). Of our eight graduates, four accepted tenure-track academic jobs, two of them are working as social science analysts in private industry, and two are currently on the academic job market, both with tenure-track interviews lined up this fall. UC Merced is a campus committed to the success and support of our graduate students. Ninety-seven percent of Ph.D. students at UC Merced receive full financial support, which includes five years of tuition, a generous stipend, and health insurance. We also offer competitive graduate student grants to support research during the winter and summer breaks. Our city, which is 90 minutes from Yosemite, two hours from San Francisco, three hours from Lake Tahoe, and five hours from Los Angeles, has the lowest cost of living across the UC system. That means funding stretches further at UC Merced, allowing our students to focus on research and a timely completion of degree. More details about our program, faculty, and requirements can be found on our website: http://polisci.ucmerced.edu/. You can also learn more about our program by viewing this flier and informational video. Reply here or email us if you’d like to learn more.
  2. Say I´m an engineer and I want to apply for Economics. I have all the necessary math background but never had one single economic class. Department´s website says I need a couple of undergrad economic classes as prerequisites. If I enroll in undergrad classes in order to fulfill the prerequisites for applying for a graduate course (say a MA in Economics), do I get funded to do that (as a domestic student)?
  3. Good afternoon, I am trying to gauge my odds of acceptance into three graduate programs for a masters in history. Below are my general stats that are applicable and I would like to see what everyone things my odds are of getting accepted as well as funding. I am taking the GRE next thursday so I will post those below once taken. The three schools are University of Tennessee at Knoxville, Texas State University in San Marcos, and University of Memphis B.A. History, Minors in Political Science, Military Science Undergrad GPA: 3.01 Work: 2LT US Army Military Intelligence Publications: I was published three times while in undergrad I have several public speaking engagements, lead battlefield tours, was invovled in ROTC for 3 years, received various awards for my publications and military service, and I spent three years in Model United Nations. My letters of rec come from two of my history professors and a lieutenant colonel in the army (my co-author)
  4. I intend to apply fro PhD Chemical Biology at Stevens Institute of Technology. What are the chances of getting a fully funded position for PhD chemical Biology at Stevens. TIA
  5. tldr; I'm looking for grants and scholarships large enough to fund at least a year of a particular PhD program. I already know about the GRFP but that's a long shot even under the best of circumstances, so I need other options. I'm a white male born in the US, so diversity scholarships are a no-go for me. More detail: When applying for science policy PhD programs last year, I applied to Program A and Program B (plus others, but they're not relevant). Program A was my top choice by far and I had been in touch with a faculty member from there for a long time, so he knew I was interested. I really wanted to get in, so I spent months studying for the GRE and meticulously preparing my application. I also worked on an application for the NSF GRFP, but didn't submit it because I wasn't knowledgeable enough about what I'd research or how. It got to early April, and while I'd been accepted to Program B (with full funding plus an extra campus scholarship) and rejected everywhere else, I hadn't heard from Program A. I called and found out that the professor I expected to work with simply hadn't received funding for any projects. If he had, I would have been first in line. Program B, and the university overall, has a very good reputation and seemed like it had a lot to offer, so I figured there was no harm in going there. However, now that I'm here, I've already encountered a variety of financial, cultural, geographical and even research issues that are giving me pause. (For example, I can't make student loan payments that will count toward my Public Service Loan Forgiveness at Program B, while I can at Program A. The campus of Program B is also big and sprawling, which I don't like, whereas that of Program A is much smaller and easier to navigate. Program A is much closer to my family, while I have to take a flight from Program B.) When I put them all together, I found myself seriously contemplating the idea of transferring. I got in touch with Program A again, and they told me I could reapply, but the professor still doesn't have any funding and doesn't know if he will. (I told him I'd be happy to work on projects with other professors as well, but since he already knows me I think he's my best bet.) Therefore, he suggested to apply for outside scholarships, but didn't have any good particular leads. I've done some searching but the majority of school funding opportunities I've found appear to be for the hard sciences, whereas I'm interested in topics like telecommunications policy and innovation systems. The university of Program B does have a fellowships office, but I'm afraid if I tell them why I'm seeking these scholarships they won't support me. So I figured I'd come here to find out what other scholarships and fellowships might give me some additional financial flexibility. Another question - less of a concern right now but still worth bringing up - is if I can successfully transfer, how I would handle the summer. I'd want to tell Program B I'm transferring with enough notice for them to admit someone else to replace me, but if they know I'm leaving they might be reluctant to sponsor me for any programs or other opportunities to keep me funded during the summer. For anyone who has successfully transferred, how did you go about this part?
  6. So I have accepted a PhD offer at a very prestigious institution, but I am concerned about the PI that I will be working under. He has exhibited a lot of red flags, and I am under the impression he is not a good mentor, bordering on labor abuse. Is it possible to defer my other PhD admissions for a year, granting me time to see whether my concerns are valid, or if the relationship can work? If so, how should I phrase this to the other institutions?
  7. Hello, I went through the DrPH 2019 thread and I found it quite informative. I will be applying for DrPH in Fall 2020 and thought to open this forum so others who will also be applying can join in. Looking forward to connecting to the others interested in this program.
  8. It looks like the program is fully funded, but I can't find any info on stipend amount, etc. I really wish some of these programs would improve their online presence! Anyway, any knowledge or insight would be appreciated!
  9. I am an international student (American) starting my MSc in physics at ETH in Zurich this autumn. I've done a lot of research on the internet looking for funding and have come up with nil. I tried applying for federal (US government) loans but ETH is not listed as one of the eligible schools. I contacted one of the professors in the department and they said they cant take employees without at least a masters. I looked into being a teaching assistant but I cant apply until after the first semester (and I do not speak a terrible amount of German, but I will be learning over the summer). I was hoping to get some other ideas for funding. I did not get the ESOP and the financial aid office said they only offer scholarships to students who already have a scholarship from their home country. I contacted my school and I missed alot of the deadlines for scholarships for studying abroad :(. Are there any international students studying in Switzerland (or who have) that could offer their experience or ideas? Thanks!
  10. I've been accepted into the MFA in Creative Writing at Oregon State University. (yay!) It is their Low-Residency program, so mostly online, which means they don't offer much funding, since I can't be a TA. I'm also applying to Anticoh and UC Riverside Low-Res. I am having a hard time locating funding for such a specific situation. I'm Latina, first-generation graduate, their must be something out their for me, right?? Please help!
  11. For those that have been admitted/attend the University of Arizona, what are the typical # of funding offers? The coordinators have said they won't know how many assistantships they can offer until the know how much funding the department receives from the Graduate college at UofA (no timeline given on when they will hear). Dr. Alt mentioned that out of state students typically receive more funding help than in state students, due to the higher tuition rates, but not knowing anything about financial award is a little scary when trying to decide between programs. For those that attend, are funding offers common/uncommon? Also if any UofA students see this and would like to give your opinion on the program that would be greatly appreciated as well.
  12. As I, like several others, might find myself facing a choice between NYU and programs in other—far cheaper—cities, I am hoping that there might be a current NYU student or two hanging around that could share their experiences living in New York on the NYU English program funding. I know the finding package is robust, but I am worried about, among other considerations, rent and the cost of food. Grateful for any insight anyone can provide!
  13. Hello everyone. My course of PhD starts in Fall 2019. The university is offering me a tuition waiver and TA of $12,400 for 9 months. The total estimated cost is $42,000 and they are providing with almost$39,500 including the tuition fee. The rest has been covered by my family and a bit extra. I have already received the I20 which says the funding for a year has been covered . I am worried that I will have to show proof of funding for 5 years of the course, as I have seen in most of the forums for MS students. So my question is - is it mandatory for PhD students to show documents of funding for 5 years of your course ?
  14. I called them last week, they said we should hear about funding by the end of this week!
  15. I got into SAIS but was rejected by their IDEV program. Tufts offered me their Master of Law and Diplomacy program. I also got into the MA program at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. I am leaning toward SAIS because they have a really good China Studies program but the tuition is extremely expensive. I am also a bit worried about their requirement on economic classes since I can't deal with numbers/graphs. My goal is to have a PhD in IR or work in international organizations after my MA. IHEID fits my research interest and has a lot of connections with different organizations, but I'm not sure whether getting a master's in Europe will hurt my chances of coming back to the States for a PhD? Also, IHEID is less known compared to JHU, so as a non-EU citizen, will it be hard for me to find jobs that sponsors a working visa in the field, or finding a job back to the States/Asia? I am a Chinese student attending an undergraduate program in the US. If there's anyone who was also accepted by/has previously attended those programs, or have knowledge about them, please comment with your suggestions. I would really appreciate it. Gracias~
  16. Hi, What does it mean if I ask a department I applied to a PhD program and then I get this response "We have received your application for the Environmental Science Graduate program. Your application will be held until all positions are filled. Thank you for your interest in our graduate program". I am assuming perhaps I am on a waiting list till but it is not explicitly stated. Thanks
  17. Hi, I received admissions from three different universities in the US but the admission letters came from the graduate school and did not mention funding. I received my first offer on Jan 17th, the second on February 18th and the third on March 3rd. How long is too long for funding decisions to be made? Is it normal that admission decisions and funding decisions can be made 1 month or 2 months apart? What is your experience with receiving admission offers and funding offers later? Thanks
  18. Hey! To all those (masters and Ph.D. applicants) who have been accepted to the BME program at JHU, have you all received the welcome/funding letter? I am waiting for mine. I applied to the MSE program and desperately hope to get some financial aid.
  19. Hello. I got admitted by UCF for their CS PhD program starting in Fall 2019. The acceptance letter said the following: " If you are awarded a financial offer package (for degree-seeking students only), this information will be sent separately from this admission letter". It has been 1 month since I receive the acceptance letter and I still have not received any information about funding. I found that I am not the only one without that information on the Results Search section of thegradcafe. Does anyone have some information about it?
  20. Hi there, I got a PhD offer this year and really hope to receive some suggestions. The supervisor has a big name in my field and she is super nice. We have a great research fit! Also, the location is quite good. However, the program is pretty small (only 3 faculty members and they only send 1-2 PhD offers each year) and the fundings can't be guaranteed. My supervisor told me I will get 6-month RA support and 9-month tuition waiver in the first year. It will depend on my progress to get different types of fundings in the next 4 years. Does anyone have some opinions? Thx a lot!!
  21. I have been accepted to one of my top choices for graduate school (MA) and am pretty certain I will be accepting their offer. I'm very excited and so flattered to have been accepted, but I am slightly worried about funding. The acceptance letter I received had a section about funding, but this section was left blank. I have no idea if this means I was not offered any funding, or if the decision regarding funding has not been made yet. I will be contacting the department this week to ask them about possible funding, but I am unsure how to bring it up. What should I ask them? I have also received an offer from a different school that offers me a small amount of funding, should I bring this up? Or should I not mention the other funding offer since I do not even know if the first school was going to offer me funding in the first place? Should I let them know they are my first choice? Part of me wants to be completely honest with them, but then another part of me wonders if I should keep my cards close to my chest. I guess what I am asking is, how do I ask the department if there will be any funding opportunities available to me without being rude or shooting myself in the foot?
  22. Has anyone been accepted to Kent State and heard anything about funding? Or know when we will hear about it?
  23. First, I am an international student who applied to the Graduate School of Education, 2019 Fall. Can you share your funding situation? I have been accepted to Texas Austin, Ohio State, and Connecticut and else, but no funding information at all. It makes me hard to choose a school. In particular, Austin says that they can't guarantee the fund including TA, GRA. Is it unusual for a Ph.D. in education to study with funding? Will it be possible to get an assistantship after enrolling the school?
  24. Hello! Does anyone know anything about Rutgers American studies program? I can't find much information on their webpage and there seems to be very few entries on the results page... Is this a strong program? Is the funding good (the DGS never wrote me back when I asked what it entailed)? Also, why would there be so few entires in the results page?
  25. This was sent via the PhilUpdates Google Group. It might be of interest to some of you. I am not at this program but completed an MA there some time ago. PM me if you have questions about the program from a grad student perspective. Dear all, As we approach our deadline, we wanted to mention that, *in addition to* the TA’ships and other fellowships we have already advertised, we have had a strong track record of extramural funding that has been used to provide additional funding to our graduate students. Such funding can be disbursed as cash, or else to provide research support for graduate students (including travel—though myriad other possibilities exist for travel funding as well). Much of this funding has attached to projects in applied ethics, with an emphasis on technology ethics. Additional projects in development lie at the intersection of moral psychology and the philosophy of emotion. Beyond these, other faculty members may also be developing extramural funding—we’d encourage any interested students to reach out to potential advisors. Or just feel free to ask me or Dr. Charlie Kurth (director of admissions, charles.kurth@wmich.edu); and we’ll help answer questions. Deadline is February 15.
