  1. Hello everyone, I'm starting this topic to exchange questions and help each other regarding the DAAD "Research Grants - Doctoral Programmes in Germany, 2020/21" (N° 57440921). Also to let us know our application progress. Best of luck to all of us!
  2. I am going into my second year for my MFA in studio arts at SACI Florence. I am looking into grants and how to write a good grant proposal. One book I bought on Grant Writing focus is on non-profit and has limited information for an artist. " The Only Grant-Writing Book you'll ever need" is not at all the last I need. The books I find on Amazon are dated. (10 + years old) Has anyone here ventured into grant writing as an individual artist? I am looking for a recommendation on resources which help me write grants as an individual artist. Thanks
  3. I am in a dual-doctoral program that is set up such that you complete your doctor of physical therapy degree by the 3rd year and then complete your PhD afterwards with some overlap in the 2nd and 3rd years of the DPT program. I am finishing my 4th year and have completed my DPT, so my University now considers me a post-doc. Last summer I had applied for a Clinical and Translational Science Post-doc Fellowship (TL1) and an NIH F30 (predoctoral fellowship specific to dual-doctoral students). I was awarded and accepted the TL1 before I heard back about the F30, but now have also been offered the F30. Since the TL1 is a post-doc fellowship the stipend is approximately $24,000 higher than the pre-doc F30, it provides $8,000 in research funding (the F30 provides none), and it covers my full tuition (the F30 provides 60%). However, the TL1 is only for 2 years (I probably will need an additional 6m-1y after before I graduate, the F30 is for 3.5y which is well more than enough for me to graduate) and the F30 is far more prestigious since it is an individual national fellowship and would be much more beneficial if I apply for future NIH funding (like a K or R01) later on. I am leaning towards pursuing a career in industry, but have not ruled out a career in academia. I looked into my options with both the NIH and through my Univeristy to try to supplement the predoc F30 stipend to match my current post-doc stipend and that isn't a possibility. The NIH program officer called me today to tell me what a bad idea turning down the F30 would be if I ever want to apply to the NIH again, but a $32,000 difference is a big deal to me when I have 6 figure student loan debt, so I don't know that the prestige is worth the financial difference. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
  4. I'm leaving for an interview weekend this weekend for a microbiology phd program and I haven't been able to find recent grants that a POI I'll be interviewing with has currently. Is it inappropriate to ask about what grants she has funded right now since that is connected to how I'll be paid to be in that lab? I'm only asking because a lot of her publications are from a while ago and I want to know whether she has enough active grants (and therefore active projects) in my field of interest but I'm worried that it will come across as me asking about money too early on. Thoughts?
  5. Hello Grad Cafe, So I've just been informed I've been offered admission to a DC school to study an online MPH, with an option of becoming a campus student, should I decide later. I'm waiting to hear back from two other programs I've applied for. One is an Ivy league institution, the other is the number one MPH program in the country. All three options are online programs. My question is: Are there any full tuition scholarships/grants for the MPH. The DC school didn't offer me any scholarship whatsoever, hence why I'm still hoping to hear back from the other two school's with something towards tuition. I am a domestic student, due to having dual nationality, and so not considered an international student. I have been researching and saw some scholarships on this site: https://www.publichealthonline.org/scholarships-and-grants/ but I wondered if anyone else may know of any other options for scholarships? Advice, tips, suggestions welcomed.
  6. Hi there, Have any UIC MHA applicants received notice of acceptance or denial? Also curious to hear plans for tuition. i.e. assistantship, grants, scholarships, etc. Thanks for you time.
  7. Hey guys and gals, I've recently been accepted for a Masters in Columbia University, but due to personal issues I wasn't able to find the additional time to apply to their internal fellowships and funding. Now that everything is right again in life and I have some time to take a breather, I realize it's already past most fellowship deadlines. Under the eventuality that nothing is available at all, I'd be able to pool basically every cent of my savings and make it work with student loans, but I'd rather not have that much debt if I can help it. Wondering if any of you know of any that are still open to this date? If not, could anyone suggest a good place to start searching myself? So far, I've looked into public databases but the process of looking at each individual grant and seeing if it fits my particular situation is rather time-consuming. Is there no better and more efficient way to do this? Also, is it common for graduate students to complete their studies without any internal or external grants in the U.S.? (My undergraduate tuition was less than 2000CAD for a semester so I could easily afford everything with a part-time job.) Here's a few circumstance-specific details: I am Canadian I identify as a woman I will be studying International history, specifically US-China-Japan relations
  8. Hey Everyone, Haven't found a recent thread for NSF DDIG applicants yet so I thought I would start one. I applied for a Political Science DDIG, due date was June 15, 2017, and, according to the website, decisions are usually made within 6 months of submitting the application. Just over 7 months now and application is still pending in Fastlane. Applications were sent out for external review on October 26, I believe the panel review for my division was held in early December at the latest. I've been checking the recent awards list regularly to see what's been released (https://www.fastlane.nsf.gov/servlet/A6RecentWeeks), but other than that idk how to judge a timeline for notification. Anyone heard anything back yet or have any experience with this process?
  9. 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?
  10. Hey guys!!!! So i have recently started my application to Tufts MALD, NYU Wagner, UChicago Harris and Brandeis. I am an international student graduated from a public university in the US this may. My plan is to work in my country until next summer and by then hopefully get accepted to any of the schools and start my MA. My GPA is 3.6 pol sci major minored in IR, my GRE is really not that great i would say average and from a developing country, i have not had any internship whilst i was in college. However, i would probably start working for the government (my country) from this November and make up that "work experience" preferred by Grad Schools. My main is concern is the "money". I got a full scholarship from my country to study in the US however, i can not get another scholarship from my government for MA again. I was previously accepted to NYU GSAS and Boston University, however i had to decline the offer because of financial reasons. This year i want to do it right, i have researched and all the schools i am applying to offer various schorlaship, grants and TA etc, and i understand that it is extremely hard and rare to get FULL Ride for MA from the schools i am applying to. Can you guys tell me what other external sources i need to consider? Ex: their website, name etc. Considering that i am an international student. Also, when i should start applying to external funding? After i get acceptance or while i am applying ? Thank you guys too much!!!!!!!
  11. One of the greatest things about Bio medical PhD programs, is the fact it is paid for, plus you get a stipend. Even so, I anticipate needing more than the stipend will provide. What advice is out there about taking out student loans (federal or private) or other ways of financing graduate education? I have done the standard google searches, so I am mostly looking for what people have experienced personally and what their recommendations are.
  12. Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum and this is my first post. I graduated from college in May and I'm seriously considering getting an SLP master's. I'm working right now to save money, but, according to my calculations, the closest program to me (University of Washington) would force me to rack up 40k+ of debt. I would prefer to limit my debt to 20k if possible, especially since I would love to work in a high-need public school district that isn't necessarily the best paying. Here's a bit more about me: graduated in May from Yale University with a BA in linguistics (so I'd need to do a post-bac for most schools) college GPA is 3.93, magna cum laude, phi beta kappa (okay I'll stop with the Greek and Latin now) resident of Washington state haven't taken the GRE yet currently working as a paraeducator in a public school in a self-contained special education classroom would love to work in public schools somewhere in the western half of the US (or Canada if I could somehow get a visa) have a special interest in AAC (from my experiences working with kids on AAC devices, PECS, etc.) and autism am definitely not looking to start school full-time until at least 2018-19, if not later I've been looking at schools in the Western Regional Graduate Program, because they offer in-state tuition to Washington residents and most of the schools in Washington have pretty high in-state tuition compared to those in states like Utah and Idaho. I've focused on Utah State University because the school: offers an online post-bac (which would allow me to keep working during the day and earning money) lets Washington state residents pay in-state tuition has a low cost of living (very low when compared to Seattle) seems to be in a beautiful area of the country (other than air pollution, which I can live with) has various grants, assistantships, and scholarships listed on their website-- I'm especially interested in the URLEND-Autism program which has a $7500 stipend seems to be reasonably reputable (good enough to be employed in public schools) I also looked at University of Utah, but it seemed to be somewhat more expensive and listed less funding sources. I bet people will ask, so no, I'm not Mormon, and I'm pretty liberal politically, but I've had lots of Mormon friends and don't think Utah would be too challenging in that respect. I'd love to hear from you if you have experience with USU, know about potential funding/loan forgiveness programs I might qualify for, or generally have any advice for me. Thank you!
  13. I was not accepted into any of the PhD programs that I applied to this past cycle and have now graduated from my undergrad. I began a new line of research, including developing a novel laboratory measure, over the past year and am working on trying to continue to pursue developing this model and measure (we had some very promising results!). My faculty mentor and I are planning to continue work on this over the next couple of years as I prepare to apply to programs again. This is at a liberal arts school, however, and there isn't any existing funding in the labs or department. My research over the last year was funded by an institutional grant that is only available to currently enrolled students and the line of research represents a substantial departure from any existing research programs at the school and my mentor's experience (I essentially created an entirely new research lab/program for my project). In order to do this, we need to find funding. Does anyone know of any grant opportunities for someone in my position (recent graduate, neither enrolled nor matriculating, trying to gain more experience and continue my research while re-applying to PhD programs)??? Pretty much everything that we are finding requires that one be currently enrolled in a program somewhere or at the post-doc level. I will also be continuing to TA for undergrad psychology classes this summer and through the next couple of years, but there aren't any funding opportunities for this within the department or institution. This is great experience and something that I really enjoy doing so I plan to do it even if unfunded, it would be great if I could find some way to fund myself doing this as I'm not really able to work at the same time and need to find some way to contribute to my household finances (especially since I'll have to begin repaying my student loans soon too). Does anyone have any knowledge of any funding opportunities for this? I'd appreciate any help/advice anyone can offer on where to look; funding opportunities for recent graduates that are neither currently enrolled as students, nor matriculating into a program seem to almost non-existent.
  14. Hi all, I wanted to know if there are any scholarships available for someone on the following masters program: Masters of Science, Forensic and Biological Anthropology Track. I found a few, but would like to expand my options. Thank you and good luck to you all!!!
  15. Hey everybody New user, first time poster, just awarded ETA in Colombia for Aug 2017. Anyone out there applied for additional funding grants for a Fulbright? Or know of resources where I could look into it? I know the funds' *purpose* can't replicate that of the stipend, so this would be just for research, etc only, not living/miscellaneous, right? Anyone have any insight? Thanks, and good luck to everyone!
  16. I am not sure if someone made a post regarding this. I am applying to a master's program in forensic anthropology. Now I know that there are limited funding options for a master's program, most geared to PhDs. However, are there some scholarships, grants, etc available that I or anyone who is applying for a master's program can apply to? I am applying to one, but am wondering if there are other scholarships available.
  17. I have been looking through a lot of university websites, and seen that many Engineering graduate programs (PhDs mainly) are fully funded. Just wondering if this is the norm (i.e. if you are accepted you are fully funded) and how long full funding with a stipend usually lasts (entire time, 5 years, 4 years, etc.). Just hoping some people who have heard back about funding offers could enlighten me, or direct me to the appropriate forum post. Thanks!
  18. This came up on another thread and I thought it was a fascinating topic so I decided to start a new thread about it. I would love to hear your opinions. The poster said that federally funded public graduate schools/programs may be violating the free speech/first amendment rights of applicants if they require an interview as part of the admissions process. The argument was that if the school is a federally funded public university then they should not be interviewing applicants to determine whether the applicant is a "good fit" for the program since there is no way to do so without violating the free speech/first amendment rights of applicants. Essentially, the school is monitoring the thoughts, feelings, beliefs, etc of students to determine "good fit" which is unconstitutional. Do you believe that federally funded public universities are violating the first amendment rights of applicants by conducting the interview and/or asking for writing samples? Do you think that there is such a thing as "good fit" when it comes to federally funded public universities? Should the interview be eliminated altogether? Why or why not?
  19. Hello! So I have a bit of an odd question, and please forgive me if this question is answered elsewhere or does not necessarily belong to this forum of Grad Cafe, or even if it seems a bit pretentious! I recently applied for three grants, all to travel and do work at my advisor's excavation overseas, for the express benefit of my MA thesis. He's wonderful and always optimistic, but told me that out of the three, 1 and 2 were improbable and number 3, originating from the international center here, was the most likely. I told him that I just wanted to demonstrate that I can apply to grants, to get the practice in for writing proposals. Additionally, that I wanted to demonstrate to the department that I had attempted to apply to other sources before applying to some smaller, more competitive & department-specific funding that's for MA students in my program. Well, as I was mall-walking my way to the bus today, running late, I got an email that I had won the full amount requested from the least probable source (#1)!!! Regarding this grant, my advisor said he's never had anyone win it before, and that they usually pass MAs right over. Obviously I'm intensely excited, but I'm still waiting to hear back about the other two funding sources I applied to. Number 3 in particular, as it seemed the most likely for me to win, the one from the international center. Additionally, number 2 is from a very well-known institution, and it would look the best on a resume (though still highly improbable). My question is, then; what's the etiquette for accepting funding? If I do end up wining two grants (which sounds so silly to say, believe me), I don't want to be guilty of 'double-dipping' despite all of the sources being from separate places. I also don't want to take funds away from people who would really need them. I went to an info session for Grant 3 and they said that they don't expect any portion of funds to be returned if some are unused. Grant 1 & 2 I am unsure. The grant I won (#1) covers travel, food, and local transportation; Grant 2 (from fancy institution) covers anything, no budget required; Grant 3 (international center) covers international transportation ONLY. Before you ask, housing is covered by the project I'll be on. All advice and suggestions are welcomed!
  20. Hey everyone, I was curious if anyone one, both successful applicant and not, could shed some light about what specifically they review committee is looking for in Sigma Xi grant proposals. I have to write a 'hypothetical' proposal for a Proseminar course. Since I'm writing one, I want to submit for the March deadline and was hoping to get any advice with writing it. Thanks!
  21. Hello everyone, I have a question about listing a grant on a CV. When I did my masters, my advisor wrote a grant to fund my research. The grant came from an office within the university and was competitive, not to mention it was a pretty decent-sized sum of money. In the grant proposal, my advisor is listed as the PI and I am listed under the category of "other participants" (these are the only two categories available on the grant proposal cover sheet). While the body of the grant proposal mainly focuses on the scientific rationale, there is also a line in the objectives/outcomes section that states how the project is an important component of my degree. I am unsure if I should list this on my CV since 1) I am not the PI, and 2) I didn't do the writing. However, I am also inclined to list it on my CV since 1) I am listed by name and department on the grant, and 2) my status as a graduate student and the need for money to complete my degree was an important factor in the decision to give us the grant. So if I can list this on my CV, how would I describe my role? I am certainly not a co-PI, but would I be considered a co-investigator? Is there even a difference between these two terms, because I haven't found consistent results when I tried to google this. From what I read, I fit the description of a co-investigator, since I designed most of the project following some guidelines from my advisor and did all of the work myself. Any thoughts on this?
  22. Hi everyone, I am currently completing my undergraduate degree in the US but have submitted three applications for graduate study in the UK and am looking for resources on possible funding opportunities. I have a satisfactory gpa- but not an exceptional one (3.23 presently will likely be the same when I finish in May). So I'm looking for scholarships/grants but I'm having a tough time finding anything that is applicable. Has anyone found some good resources? Even just scholarships for travel costs (I live in Alaska and commuting to London from here is NOT cheap!) Thanks!
  23. Hi all, I'm an MA-holding, humanities adjunct at a community college, and I was recently accepted to present a conference paper this spring. The conference is within driving distance (3-4 hours), but since my current department only offers travel funds to its tenure track faculty, I'm going to be left paying transport and lodging expenses myself. My question is this: do you happen to know of any other places I can look for funding? I will apply for grants from the conference itself, but I'm interested in whether or not you know of anywhere else -- NPOs, etc. Thanks for whatever help you can offer! (x-post from Writing, Presenting, and Publishing)
  24. Hello all, I thought I would throw this out to the group, because I haven't really found a good answer on my own. I've been talking to several friends who have recently (and successfully) completed PhD applications. While they all are in the social sciences (PoliSci, Econ) or hard sciences (Chemistry, Physics) rather than History, one of the recommendations they had was to make sure I apply for external fellowships simultaneously as I apply for PhD programs. Essentially, applying for the National Science Foundation (NSF) and at least one or two other awards, despite the very small chance of success (something less than 5% for NSF), is a necessary box to check to show your "seriousness" as an applicant. As I noted, I haven't seen anything that indicates this is the case for History, but I thought I would ask. Should a "serious" History PhD applicant be simultaneously applying for fellowships? If so, any suggestions of which to pursue, or a place to find a list of them? Thanks for your help, and please forgive my ignorance of the process!
