  1. 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)?
  2. Two acceptances so far at my top 2! Really tied in terms of research interests/funding/facilities/academic atmosphere/etc. (PI at one actually studied under PI at the other!) Main differences that I'm having trouble sorting out: Tech at A specific to my project ideas would need to be set up initially (by me), whereas is already set up and being piloted at B. Cost of living is high at A (almost making a studio apartment unaffordable), and (VERY) low at B (to the point of making a mortgage a no-brainer). A is prettier, topographically much more diverse than where I've lived all my life
  3. Hey everyone, I am about to join a PhD program in US this fall. I recently came across an Article about debt during PhD. The article mentions that the average grad school debt for Social Science PhD holders is $24,581, but it doesn't mention how students go into debt. My field is Social Sciences. Although I have been offered a tuition waiver and stipend for 5 years. Should I be concerned?
  4. Hey grads! I am looking to start budgeting regularly as I go into my PhD program - and am using it to predict my funding situation, as well. What is your main method for keeping track of your budget? An app? A cool excel template?
  5. Hi, I currently work in R&D at a small company and will be attending a PhD program in the fall in a totally unrelated field to my current industry. Right now things are on the WAY down low as it pertains to my acceptance to a program. I'd like to maintain some integrity, as the company I work for has been very generous and caring for me. In fact I took a promotion in January which makes this situation increasingly uncomfortable. They do have a small R&D team as well, which is why I've encountered this predicament. I'd like to tell my supervisor of my plans so they don't feel blindsi
  6. For all those living on small stipends/incomes-,what percentage of your earnings do you save each month? How easy is it for you to manage your savings? I'm figuring out right now how to create a detailed budget. If you have any tips for saving money, tools for organizing your finances or hints- please feel free to share! If you have any tips on budgeting for conference travel or study abroad they would be most welcome! My plan is to save 35% of my income. I have an extra job that I use to pay the rent, and it definitely helps, but I sometimes worry about having enough money for emergencies
  7. Hello, I am in the process of choosing between PhD programs, and I was hoping to get some advice on how to go about broaching the subject of the need for additional funding. I have four great choices so far, but the program I am most interested in offers the least funding of all of them. Without sounding demanding or ungrateful, how could I mention my financial concerns? And, would it be appropriate to mention my other offers? I will be attending the university's (my top program's) Prospective Student Open House soon. Would it be best to speak to the director in person then? Or,
  8. Hi! I'm wondering if anyone has had success making money doing speaking engagements in their area of study while in grad school or if it has helped them get a job after grad school. Seems like there would be lots of businesses and orgs interested in speakers that aren't so expensive, but are still experts (about to graduate PhDs!). Thoughts?
