  1. Financial generosity and aid is one of the most important factors that we consider when we apply and make our decisions. I am hoping to start a thread where we post about programs that give out generous funding. This thread will be resourceful to the future applicants who want to know about the schools and their aid policy. Let's compile it in this format - School and Program: Financial aid info: (for example, based on what you've heard about the program and what you've seen. info like only 1-2 people gets full ride, everyone gets minimum 15k, everyone gets full ride etc. of that sort) In the program/Accepted?: Yes/No (if possible with your aid info as well)
  2. I have been accepted into the Duke MS Economics and Computation program. I wanted to know the reviews of this particular program. What is the cost of the attendance? Also I wanted to know about the funding, financial aid and availability of student jobs.

    John Loiello AFSOAS FISH Scholarship

    I wanted to get the ball rolling here for the John Loiello AFSOAS FISH Scholarship. This scholarship is through SOAS University of London. Anyone else applied or previously applied? Currently in the waiting game.
  4. I just got an email from the financial aid office at a school I am waitlisted at, stating I have a financial aid package. I haven't gotten an acceptance letter yet, but is it safe to assume I'll be accepted off the waitllist? It just seems like a waste of time to put together financial aid packages for people who haven't been accepted yet? Has anyone experienced this, if so did you end up getting in off the waitlist shortly after getting the financial aid email?

    GSD Financial Aid - Real Estate

    Hello everyone, I hope you're all well. I am asking if anyone has anymore information on where to seek financial aid for the MDes in Real Estate and the Built Environment at Harvard's Graduate School of Design (GSD)? I have recently been admitted but unfortunately have not received any aid. It is my top choice school so I'd hate to see it slip out of my hands for lack of financial aid. I am African, Canadian & Female.

    UChicago vs. NYU vs. Columbia

    Hey everyone! I have been accepted to both NYU and UChicago so far, and am wondering if I could have insight as far as the areas the schools are located in, and their programs! I am also waiting to hear back from Columbia, and am submitting my UPenn app soon. I have visited both NY and Chicago very recently, but of course the tourist perspective is different than the resident perspective. There are several pros and cons for each of my acceptances thus far, however the pros and cons of each don't quite overlap (in my opinion). NYU: Lots of familial/peer support, program seems more focused on my direct interests, tons of things to do in the area, gave my $17,000 a year UChicago: Rank, not as much familial support, gave me $25,900 a year, beautiful city with a lot to do, not as expensive. As I mentioned, I am still waiting from Columbia, however I know a few people who were accepted last school year who received full tuition scholarships, so I'm hopeful that I'd get some sort of money from them too? As you all can tell, I am at a weird crossroads, so I'd appreciate any feedback! Thank you you all so much!!
  7. I'm about to start my PhD in Clinical Psychology in NYC at Yeshiva University (Ferkauf health emphasis program) in the fall and I'm a little worried about finances. I haven't heard back from the school about funding yet, but I'm under the impression they don't usually provide much of it. Since I'm not eligible for FAFSA, I'm wondering about other available funding opportunities for international students studying in New York (i.e. bursaries, fellowships, scholarships, loans, grants, etc.). I've looked into a few scholarships, but most of the deadlines have already passed. I will apply to these in the upcoming years, but I would love to hear about what other students in my position have done to fund their studies. It would be particularly AMAZING if anyone from the Ferkauf health emphasis program could provide me with some insight about funding opportunities for international students in that program. Any advice would be greatly appreciated-- thanks in advance

    UChicago Funding

    Hey y'all! I just recently got the recent of my scholarship package from UChicago, and I just have some questions about cost of living and tuition. I know that whenever I college posts its overall tuition, it is more of an average estimate. With that being said I received $25,900 in scholarships, $4,860 for Work Study, $20,000 in unsub loans, and $27,769 in gradplus loan. I obviously do not intend on taking out all of those loans, but I also am not as afraid of taking out loans as most people are. Do y'all think that these are good numbers to have as far as funding is concerned? Also I figured, that some of the money could go towards housing (hence why I'm down for taking out some loans at least for my first year so I can get situated) Just trying to make some informed decisions about college lmfao. Thanks y'all!
  9. Okay so I’m trying not to be too excited but I just receieved a full financial aid package (loans and grant) from my top school, but I didn’t receive an admissions letter!! I’m even able to accept or reject the finaid offer. Does this mean I am admitted??

    Simmons Financial Aid

    Hey, can anyone who got in to Simmons tell me how they notified you about your financial aid? I applied on the priority deadline of 1/20. Around Feb. 13th, I think, I got a letter saying I needed to complete their financial aid form (not the FAFSA, which I'd already done back in January) before an admission decision could be made, so I did that. I've been told that they send out scholarship info with the admissions packet. I've also been told that it will be mailed to me later this month. Someone else on this forum said that the info was emailed to them. I guess I'm just wondering what the heck is going on. I tried to call the admissions office to find out, but they put me through to the director of admissions and he sounded like he was in a real hurry so I didn't push it. Any insight would be much appreciated. I've pretty much made myself sick worrying about this. Edit: Forgot to mention I got my acceptance letter on February 23rd.

  13. I was admitted to a masters program two weeks ago (the program doesn't admit directly to PhD if you come from a bachelor's degree). So far, the school is offering to reimburse expenses for the visit day, which is coming up this week, but I still haven't heard about financial aid. Is it appropriate to ask if I'm even being considered? When I first asked about visit day reimbursements (1 week ago), I was told funds were reserved for students being considered for financial aid and that they were still figuring things out, but the response was very generic and I didn't get the feeling that the program coordinator was suggesting that I wasn't being considered. Funding for the masters program at this school is really competitive (only around 25% of the admitted MS class receives any funding at all) and their website says decisions are made by the end of March. Is it too early for me to ask? Also, do programs typically send out emails along the lines of "we know you indicated need for financial aid on your application, but unfortunately you have not been awarded any scholarships" without you asking directly? If anyone has a template for asking about financial aid, that would be incredibly helpful.
  14. What should one do? Pay $50,000 tuition at an ivy league university, or pay $0 - $10,000 at some other university (say any US university with QS world ranking below 250)
  15. Hi everyone! I just came across this forum and am so relieved, it's amazing to learn more about others' experiences working on applications, eagerly waiting, and making decisions. I'm wondering if anyone has experience/advice asking for additional financial aid for MSW programs? I was accepted to NYU's 2-Year program with some funding, but it likely is still not enough for me to be able to attend. NYU has been a top choice for me, so I'm trying to figure out the right words and strategy to ask for more. Many thanks in advance!
  16. I have just received an offer from Columbia University in Mechanical Engineering Master of Science program. The thing is, I haven't received any financial aid. I am an international applicant and it will be extremely difficult for me to pay my tuition (about $46,500). The deadline to confirm my offer (by paying $1000) is 12th of March (they gave me only 13-14 days). I have emailed them to request reconsideration of my financial aid award (explaining my situation), but haven't received any reply. What should I do? Should I submit $1000 and hope that they will provide me financial aid (30% atleast)? or, should I request them to give me more days? This way, I might get admission decisions from other universities as well (they might give financial aid). Thank you
  17. Does anyone know how financial aid in grad school works? I went all through undergrad with not having to take out loans because financial aid covered all of it (i attend sac state). I was wondering if the same can happen for grad school? Is anyone in the advanced standing msw program that can tell me how financial aid goes for them? Or anyone in the regular 2 yr msw program. I've noticed that advanced standing programs are roughly 17,000 for the one year. Is it possible for financial aid to cover all of that with just grants??
  18. I recently received my acceptance letters from the New School in New York and SAIC- Chicago. I had applied early admission for their undergrad fashion design programs, from India. Unfortunately, I was counting on a scholarship and I there has been no mention of any scholarship in either of my letters. So, there are a few questions I'd love to know the answers to- 1. Do the scholarship applicants get to know if they've received anything after the regular applications have been processed as well? 2. I understand that as an international student on a student visa I can only work upto 20 or so hours a week, and i've been reading about work study opportunities, how are the two different, if they are? 3. Are there any art/ design scholarships that I can still apply to at this point of time that applies to international students? 4. Does the Indian Government give out scholarships? 5. Are there any places in the states where a loan can be taken for these colleges without a cosigner? 6. Are there any places in India where a loan this hefty can even be taken? I carried out my entire application process entirely on my own so any information at all from someone who may or may not have gone through the same problems would be exceedingly helpful as it would be very disappointing to have to give up an opportunity like this.
  19. I've just gotten a Financial Aid email from one of my schools, complete with an ID number of some sort and a request for me to set up my financial aid profile. The kicker is-- I haven't gotten an admission decision from them yet. Has anyone had this happen to them or have a guess what it means? I'm trying not to get my hopes up!

    Administrative Issues

    If you were accepted to a university who offered you an opportunity to apply for a significant grant, and then for two weeks despite repeated requests has failed to provide you with the necessary materials to complete the application, how would you feel? The department has expressed great interest in me and been thoroughly welcoming, but the administrative failure to provide me with what I need has me balking at acceptance. This feels like a harbinger of things to come. Am I overreacting? Or is it fair to assume that this may well be indicative of a more pervasive problem?

    NYU MSW Finances

    Hey everyone! I recently just received my first graduate school acceptance from NYU. I am extremely excited about the entire thing, however I wanted more insight about finances and managing life in New York. NYU gave me a tuition award of $17,000 a year, but I am also not sure if that's even a good amount to be awarded. I know that regardless I'd need to find an additional source of income. For the sake of insight, do you all think that $17,000 a year is a good amount to get from this institution? I am still waiting on other schools to hear back, but I'd just like to hear some opinions. Thank you so much!
  22. Hey everyone! I just had a question about graduate assistantships or fellowships offered at NYU or Columbia. At my current university I know a few graduate students who are MSW but they are doing assistantships with Higher Education. Does anyone have any insight about the process of locating such opportunities? I tried navigating the NYU and Columbia websites, but I couldn't seem to find any information. Thank you all so much!
  23. For this question, would graduate school count as college, or is that separate? If it's separate, would I just fill out "0" if nobody else in my household is pursuing a college degree? The question is: How many people in your household will be in college in 2017-2018?

    Merit Aid for MSW Programs

    Financing your MSW is a popular subject here, so hoping to crowdsource thoughts: What are the programs that offer the most merit aid that is not tied to need? FAFSA has determined that I do not qualify for any grant based need/scholarships, and while I was admitted to Smith, their merit aid is tied to need. I believe I have a strong professional and academic background to get merit-based scholarships. I am not in the hole financially, thank goodness, but I only make 55k/year and have little savings. Taking out loans upwards of 100k+ for an MSW is terrifying. State schools for in-state tuition aren't a great option as I live in DC and we don't have a public MSW program/there is no tuition reciprocity for other programs in nearby states. Other advice? Thanks in advance!
  25. 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.
