  1. At what point did you find out if you have a graduate assistantship position? I applied during the school application process which was due in December, but my school is waiting until the end of this month (July) to tell us if we got a position when they originally said they would let us know in May. This feels like a bit of scam, is it normal to not know at this point? I'm not sure if it has anything to do with the pandemic, but I feel like the decision is being delayed for one reason or another. The school and department has not been very communicative... Or am I just overthinking this and I should just wait it out?
  2. 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.
  3. I'm going to be starting my MSc in Social Data Science at the OII this fall. I was wondering if any other OII students (MSc, DPhil, SDS, Social Science of the Internet... doesn't matter) have heard back from Oxford, the OII or their college about funding. The department has been pretty tight lipped when I've asked about the process of allocating scholarships/departmental awards. Is there something I'm missing here? I'm interested to hear other's experiences; especially from incoming/present OII students.
  4. Hello everyone, I hope corona do not find you :) . I want to know the funding program for international student accepted into neuroscience PhD at Harvard. Based on the website, the PhD student receive scholarship but still I donot understand the plan for this. I sent an e-mail to the funding officer but no response. As I understand from the website, it is a tiered tuition structure that reduces tuition over time as students progress through their degree programs. Another plan is the fully funded option. Which plan is available for international students? Best regards
  5. 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 ?
  6. I am now feeling discouraged about the whole grad school process. I received acceptance to my top two programs (yay) and visited both. I liked both of them but option A is definitely a better fit for me. My would-be mentor at B is shifting her research focus away from my core area of focus. My would-be mentor at A has many projects I would enjoy working on. I also didn't like the location of B. I could definitely adjust to it if I needed to but option A is a much better option for me. A is also rated better and seems to have more prestige. Everything else is pretty much the same between the two. Obviously, I was very much planning on going to A all things considered, and getting very excited about it. However, April came around and I still hadn't received any funding information at A. I reached out to the program head to check on what the timeline might be. During the interview, he promised all students get funding. In his email reply, however, he said that they were trying to figure out funding and couldn't make me any promises. So now I'm feeling pretty sketched out by the program with being promised one thing months ago and now being told there's no promise of anything. All the grad students I've talked to have said that they have received funding all five years and that the stipend is enough to live on. Option B has given me funding information (guaranteed for all five years) but all students have a part time job on top of their schooling responsibilities. Any insight on what I should do? Do I take the promised offer at a worse fit or do I risk needing to take out loans, work, and likely drop out from the stress at the better option?
  7. I am looking for advice from anyone who has tried/succeeded in negotiating your aid package. I would appreciate strategies and feedback from anyone who has done this, regardless of their program. However, my admission is to DU Korbel for IDEV. I received scholarships for 39% of tuition and an offer for an hourly "aide" position.
  8. I am looking to start this thread giving insight on which American universities that offer a PhD program in Sociology "guarantee" full funding and the degrees of this concept of full funding through the firsthand experience of current PhD students. I encourage to you, whether applicant, student or PhD holder in Sociology to add your thoughts, experiences and feedback on this issue. I believe this can be beneficial to all of us because I may even venture to conspire that there may be correlation with the college's policy and/or the situation of each Sociology of department.
  9. Hi all, This was my second application process (with better GRE scores + 2+ years of research ex + Master's + 1 first author publication and 4 under review). Despite this I didn't get into a PhD program. I think my Master's grades had to do with it. Got notified about an acceptance to NYU for a Master's. I was hoping I'd get in there for PhD, but that did not happen. They do not provide any funding. Is there any way to get scholarships/funding? I definitely cannot afford to pay/take out a loan, unfortunately. (note: I'm an international student from a developing country). I also don't think that for at least 5-6 years, I won't be able to apply again (by that time I'd have to somehow figure out a way to stay financially afloat, lol) Any other advice?
  10. Do schools reach out to you about scholarships and funding? Or are you supposed to ask them? I've been accepted into a few schools and haven't gotten any emails/letters about funding/financial aid. Is it just assumed you get no awards if they don't contact you?
  11. With many universities moving to online class format, are there people out there who are funded with a TAship that find themselves affected by this? Are you still TAing, but now virtually? For people who currently have no classes, did the department reduce your stipend? For incoming 2020 students, have any universities contacted you to change the terms of your offer (rescind a TA offer)?
  12. 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.
  13. Hey everyone! So I was accepted to Stanford's Aero/Astro MS program which was really exciting news two months ago. Since then it's been a constant struggle of looking for funding from the department, getting more stressful by the day! I actively pursued a couple backup universities, and have full funding for my degrees at University of Arizona (PhD), Tucson, and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (MS), FL. I really want to go to Stanford though, but the more that I read about it, the more it seems that it's not worth getting into so much debt to go there for a Master's degree. It's all made harder by the fact that as an international student I don't have access to so many other sources of funding in the United States. The research at Stanford directly aligns with my goals: I want to study controls on Unmanned Aircraft Systems, and during my visit to the campus, I was thrilled to find out about the awesome research they do there. The research at the other universities is focused more on Aerodynamics and Fluid Mechanics, both strong secondary interests of mine. They do some controls research as well, but it's nowhere near as good as that at Stanford. The situation is obviously made harder by a two body problem with my long time girlfriend in Tucson. And for that reason, it really is a choice between University of Arizona, Tucson and Stanford. I suppose my questions are: is it worth it to get into so much debt? As an international student, the aerospace industry is rather unforgiving in the United States. Will I give myself a chance for a better career by going to Stanford vs. any of the other universities? I am willing to work as hard as I can to get funding once I am at Stanford, but it seems counter-productive to be taking on so much stress when I should really be focusing on learning and getting more experience.
  14. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1XNJR4IhOJ56zd7zLuVSUK7h054dBRNvyiC7iStCOsxo/ Last year, I started the process of making an updated version of funding packages with the help of students accepted into programs. The list isn't complete but I hope it provides a more complete version of what universities expect in exchange for their funding. It is open-access so edits are welcome.
  15. To all masters applicants at Cambridge, when can one expect decisions for Cambridge Trust scholarships after acceptance? How is the applicant informed? Has anyone received a decision in this cycle? Where I am right now: received acceptance for MPhil in Faculty of Education after interview in late January. I am from India and applied to all Cambridge Trust scholarships I am eligible for, EXCEPT Gates-Cambridge. If there is someone from similar background and/or applying to Education, I'd really appreciate your help.
  16. Not sure if I'm posting this in the right place... but I might as well try. I'm considering applying to the Transatlantic Masters Program at UNC-Chapel Hill, more specifically the Turkish-German track. The program seems much more viable compared to any other American university in terms of obtaining an MA, however I would still need funding to undertake studies there. I have read into some of the funding opportunities available to European and German citizens (which I am). I was wondering if anyone had any other advice in terms of funding options or opportunities I could look into or qualify for, as a German/Turkish citizen currently finishing a BA at the University of Edinburgh.
  17. I applied to Cornell's College of Agriculture and Life Sciences for PhD program. I have talked with PI before submitting the application. I have 3.9 GPA from Master , 2 publications and one paper as the lead author under review in a great journal and plenty of research experiences. I think PI really likes me but, he said he doesn't have funding right now. He still asked me to apply for it and is willing to seek out funding options for me. I may be a very strong candidate as the program fits me, my background and future goals like a glove plus competitive academic profile. I am scared that I will get rejected because PI cannot show the funding this year. He recently got hired so, he is very active academically and applying for funding actively as well. What is the likelihood that I will get rejected? Any advice on anything that I can do?
  18. Hi. I currently manage an animated series production in a company in Pakistan. I want a better grounding in film and production aspects. I want to go to a grad school ASAP (deadlines are close) but I am having a hard time finding scholarships and funding for international students in art/film schools. Can anyone help? Any country is good though I prefer the US. I am interested in RIT, Pratt, SCAD, and Chicago NY. If you could mention schools with January deadlines, I would prefer that.
  19. Hello, My question is for anyone who has been accepted to media related PhD programs. I'm looking to apply for Communications/media studies programs and wanted to know for those who have been accepted to these programs what type of background did you have: - what was your GRE score? - past college GPA's - did you have any publication experience? - did you have and related work experience in the field of communications/media studies/film? - what school were you accepted to and what did they offer full funding?
  20. 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.
  21. 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)?
  22. 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)
  23. 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
  24. 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?
  25. 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!
