  1. 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.
  2. Hi, I am now trying to decide between Columbia's MA in Political Science program and UChicago's MA in International Relations program. Seems like both of them are one-year programs (still not 100% sure if the columbia one is one year?), and UChicago gives scholarship while Columbia doesn't. Wondering if anyone has experience in either of the programs and would like to talk a bit about your experience (pros and cons etc.)? ps I am also thinking about pursuing a JD after my master's study, would like to talk about JD application for MA students as well! Any comment/opinions/suggestions would be much appreciated, thanks a million!
  3. Looking for funding

    Hi. I got admitted in the MA in Women's History program at Sarah Lawrence College for Fall 2018. I am from Karachi, Pakistan and cannot afford to fund grad school myself. What options do I have other than the partial scholarships being offered by SLC?
  4. I come from a low-income family and was able to attend Wellesley College thanks to their incredible need-based aid. I am going to UChicago for a masters in public policy next year and want to serve you all in the US federal government graduation. However, my family and I lack funding, and I'm looking at lot of debt right now. I entered a scholarship contest in which I can win $4,000 for the first prize if my friends vote up to twice a day by April 1. It would mean the world to me if you did and could tell your friends and post in a group or two. The link is here:

    HIIIIIII EVERYONE I GOT admitted to PENN STATE and was offered 25k for 2 years, (12,250$ per year) plus 2,500K for any internship and such, I am really grateful for the offer, but i need 100% funding in order to attend since the school's estimated cost is around 50K for one year (I am an INTERNATIONAL Student), I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO, and yes i have researched every database, website on the internet for scholarships and because of various reasons, age, work experience, country residency, major and stuff there was no suitable scholarship out there, THEREFORE, i have no choice but to TRY negotiate with the school if any of you have negotiated before, please provide me tips ANY ADVICE will DO
  6. Hey folks, Have anyone applied for Erasmus Mundus programs this year? Which ones? How is your selection process going? Cheers, Roman
  7. Georgetown MSFS Scholarship Waitlist

    Over the weekend, I was (unofficially) accepted to Georgetown's MSFS!!! I am, of course, over the moon as this is my top choice. According to the email, I was waitlisted for a scholarship. Does anyone have any experience with this? How likely is it that funding will come through? And how long are the waitlists for these? I've (of course) applied for outside funding, but most of those do not notify until April, so the cost of attendance is a bit scary at the moment.
  8. 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)
  9. 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
  10. I was recently surprised to learn that many universities with FLAS funding open applications to graduate students from other universities. For example, a friend of mine who is a Georgetown grad student got FLAS funding from the University of Michigan to do a summer program in Brazil. I think that the University of Michigan gave her the scholarship because they did not receive enough applications from their own students. My question is if anyone has heard of people applying for FLAS funding from third party universities during the academic year. I would like to study a critical language at an area studies program that does not receive and I was wondering if I could apply for the funding at other universities.
  11. Hi everyone, I am applying to Master of Social Work programs. I also want to be able to find some outside scholarships, in case I am not offered any scholarships. Where are you applying for outside scholarships? The only one I can really think of is the Hispanic Scholarship Fund. Any advice and help is greatly appreciated!
  12. Hi all, I'm lucky enough to have received a half tuition scholarship from USC, and a 2/3 tuition scholarship from GWU. No mention of living stipends or other assistantships. Including my scholarships, tuition alone would cost me roughly 40K at USC, and 20K at GWU. For what I want to do, the schools are roughly even. But the increased $$$ at GWU definitely has me leaning in their direction, and it seems like most students are able to find meaningful part time/full time employment to offset costs. I did also get into University of Chicago but with a pretty measly scholarship, so that school is out of the running. I'm definitely debt averse. I'm trying to figure out when/how to negotiate the offers. Has anyone had any success with these schools? I should also hear back from Rutgers in early/mid March. They seem to be generous with funding, and their program isn't as competitive. I think it's possible I could get a full ride, and I'm wondering if I should wait to negotiate until I hear from them? That way I have something to bargain with. Any and all advice would be appreciated!
  13. Hi, Can one apply for Harris School, University of Chicago, MSCAPP program scholarship through Joint Japan World Bank Scholarship (preferred list) ? Alternatively would be grateful if one could assist with STEM scholarships for international students ? Many thanks!
  14. Matching Funds?

    I just got a phone call from the Graduate Chair at McMaster University (Canada). They said they would offer me 7,000$ + a TA position with the option to match any funds I am offered from other Universities. I am so happy yet am a little disappointing that they seemed to start off with such a small scholarship. I see many people getting such high starting figures or being fully funded... Is getting substantial funding unusual in Canada or am I just not competitive......? My degree is in sociology so maybe for that discipline, it is a competitive offer? I really have no clue. I'm happy yet kinda eh... Thanks for any help, me
  15. Canada PhD funding amounts

    Hello, Initially planning to apply to Canadian programs only (I am an anthropology student) I decided to take the GRE and change most of my applications to US programs after learning that funding and quotas for international students were limited there. I have been accepted to the PhD program at UBC with 4 year funding at CAD18,200 and informed that there would also be possible TA'ship positions later at CAD 12,000. It would be great to study in Canada, as while I know that PhD programs (perhaps just for the social sciences) are more 'valid' when from the US, my homecountry is a mess right now, and my spouse (who is an architect) and toddler will be accompanying me and Canada does give the chance of PR'ship after 3 years which we might consider as well as work permits on arrival etc. etc. I'm wondering if I'm not mistaken in thinking that a monthly CAD1500 is a bit too low for a student to manage in Vancouver, even if I were to go alone? (We will have a little extra funding set aside but it will be spent on childcare) The rents for one thing are so high! I'm still waiting for the results from Queens (Cultural studies) and York and a few other US universities (I have received one acceptance) but am wondering if anyone could advice me before I decline.. I know there are gov grants that can be applied to but most seem to be for Canadian citizens and also I'm not sure if I should count on those.
  16. Dream/nightmare coming true

    Hi guys! I'd like to share sth that has just happened to me and see if there is anyone who has been through sth similar. I applied back in September for two universities in Germany, both in Environmental science. After applying for them I also applied for daad scholarship. I received the letters of award this week from daad including the confirmation letter for the language course in Munich on the 1st of April -- DREAM HOWEVER... right after receiving the good news above I received the email from.the two universities stating I wasn't accepted for the masters in their institution. I was confused and disappointed. One of the universities said they do not accept biologists only environmental and civil engineers, the other university said the application should have great knowledge of microbiology, biology and chemistry and they emphasized I only had a single course while in college. I tried an appeal letter but didn't succeed. -- nightmare Has anyone gone through sth like that? Please help me.
  17. Hi, I applied for the Excellence Scholarship and Opportunity Programme along with a MSc Physics application and I thought it might be useful to open a thread to talk about the admission results and interviews. Until now, I still have not heard from both the scholarship and the study program. Has anyobody already heard from them or gotten an interview for the ESOP scholarship, yet, or knows when the interviews will take place?
  18. Hi guys, I applied DAAD scholarship for my Masters( in Finance) studies in November and recently have been invited to the interview in German embassy. My interview is two weeks away and it's my first interview. Is there anyone who has experience with DAAD interviews? What questions can i expect during the interview? Thank you in advance)
  19. Hello! I am recently admitted to the mph program at mailman school of public health, and am exploring this program more in depth. I have a few questions that I would like to ask people who have been to this program. I am wondering if anybody who went to Mailman School of Public Health received merit-based scholarship from the program? If yes, what portion does it cover for your tuition? Also, what is the estimated cost of the whole program(including tuition, living expense, etc.). Based on your post-program job experience, would you say it's worth it? Last, what would you say is the greatest advantage for the program? Or disadvantage? Thank you in advance!
  20. What are the various scholarship opportunities for Prospective graduate students (from India) who want to pursue masters in USA? Private or government scholarships for specifically masters in electrical engineering

  22. 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!

  24. I know I'm shooting for the moon here, but in my wildest dreams I would love to not drown in debt in the process of getting an SLP MA. I'd love to hear from anyone who has gotten full (or nearly full) funding, whether through an outside scholarship, fellowship, assistantship, etc. I'd like to know the specifics of the school/funding source, amount of funding, and why you think you got that funding. Also, if you care to tell me how realistic this dream is, my stats are below. I know stats aren't everything but I guess it'll give you an idea. I'm open to any school but partial to the western US/Canada. US citizen, WA state resident Linguistics BA from Yale University, 3.93 GPA, magna cum laude GRE: 169 verbal, 162 math, 4.5 writing Currently doing online SLP 2nd BA through Utah State (expecting ~4.0 GPA, though not a guarantee) Relevant experience: linguistics research during undergrad, 2 years working as paraeducator in public school autism program Thank you!
  25. Negotiating Scholarships

    My case: I was recently admitted to U Chicago Harris for the MPP with a moderately sized scholarship. I was also admitted to GW Law for a JD with a very large (six figure) scholarship. However, I feel that I do not want to actually practice law, but work in policy which is possible with either the JD or MPP. That said, I feel the the Harris MPP is ultimately a better fit for me as an individual. How does one go about negotiating with Harris to improve my scholarship? For what it's worth, I would absolutely commit to Harris with a slight bump in funding. It is by far my first choice program.
