  2. 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!

  4. 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!
  5. 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.

  9. 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!!!!!!!

  12. IDRC - IDRA Awards

    Has anyone applied this round to either the IDRA call or the research award call? Anyone here receive an IDRC award in the past? What are the odds, what do they look for?
  13. Hi everybody! I'm Alex Solntsev from the University of Technology Sydney. Happy to join the community. I'd like to ask for your advice. We have several PhD positions with generous scholarships and excellent employment prospects upon graduation: applied optics in partnership with leading optical companies or fundamental optics co-supervised by guys regularly publishing in Nature X. PhD defense within 3 years after a bachelor degree. The trick is that the deadline (at least for industry-sponsored ones) is in a few weeks. What would be the best way to find students quickly aside from asking the collaborators? P. S. Do you have a board at Thegradcafe for inquiries like this one? Attached are the flyers. Sorry if I'm breaking any rules, happy to amend this post to comply with the forum regulations. Industry Partnered PhD.compressed.pdf Quantum Photonics PhD.compressed.pdf
  14. Register for PhD?!!

    Hi everyone,,, I'm a newbie here, & I hope this will be a great experience on the net with you... As a first post here, I'd like to seek your advice, about a critical decision I have to take these days... I'm currently working in research at a center, while also searching for PhD scholarships abroad (outside of Egypt!), & developing a PhD research plan to improve my chances at getting one. All people, except for one, are telling me I should apply next year for PhD here in Egypt, while searching for scholarships abroad, so as not to waste another year searching for scholarships, which I may or may not find! But I'm afraid to do this because this would mean that next year I will have a huge load of doing 4 things: study the PhD preparatory courses here; search for PhD scholarships abroad; work in the center, & develop a PhD research plan! I'm afraid that pressure from all this, could cause me to suffer a psychological breakdown (I already suffer from psychological problems that make me so slow in accomplishing things & very poor in managing stress & time!). Especially that I have a bad experience in this... while studying my one-year Master's preparatory courses before here, while also working in another center (though my work was less intensive), I suffered a psychological breakdown from the pressure of studying, & had to postpone taking the 2nd term courses to next year! Though my load was much less, I was only studying & working Despite my problems, I'm very ambitious. I want to get done with PhD quickly so I can focus on doing independent research later. I'm so determined on getting a scholarship abroad, because I want to experience some radical change in my life & educational/research context. But I also don't want to lag behind (I'm currently 31 years old, which is a bit late)... I don't know what to do! So do you think I should register for PhD here this year? Or should I give myself another year focusing only on finding a scholarship & developing a research plan, & if I don't find one by next year, I can register here in Egypt the year after? Or should I just get on with it this year while doing the other tasks too?
  15. Hi guys, I'm from Pakistan and am interested in pursuing a graduate policy degree abroad. Can you guys share a list of universities which are known to either give significant amount of scholarship/aid or have inexpensive base tuition rates, specifically for international students? Include universities from all over the world, but please do mention universities in the US as well. Also, is HKS known for giving aid/scholarship for its MPP program? And if so, how much? Thanks!
  16. Hey all , I need someone who is familiar with DAAD scholarship I need to know more about DAAD scholarship about the preliminary German courses prior to the scholarship , is it funded ? when students take those courses ? I am asking these questions because I am working in a full-time job and I don't know whether I should consider quitting my job during the courses or not . One more question , Do I have to pass the preliminary courses in order to get the scholarship ? or if I was selected then I am selected and the german courses will have no effect on my chances ? Thanks all
  17. Hi Everyone, So I have been accepted into a PhD program on scholarship, but was a bit curious to know if there are any external fellowships that are available to internationals in the biomedical area/ HIV research area. Particularly those that can be applied for in the first/second years of a program. Does anyone have any experience or insight into this? So far I have just been doing random google searches and haven't had much luck. HHMI was discontinued and several others have very specific requirements. Is it just a major scavenger hunt? Or am I going about it wrong? Thanks in advance.
  18. Hey! I have been accepted into the 2 year MSW program at the University of Washington. They will not be giving me any scholarship and I am concerned about the finances because I will be paying out of state tuition. I have also been accepted into NYU and they have given me a scholarship. I know UW is a really good fit for me but NYU is a good school too and they are also giving me scholarship. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on this? and if other MSW applicants of UW also did not receive scholarship?
  19. Cambridge AHRC Studentship 2017

    I haven's seen a post about AHRC Studentship, yet, so I am starting one. I've checked the results page and I saw that someone got a rejection letter from the AHRC and I was surprised because I thought that they wouldn't notify unsuccessful applicants.
  20. Hello all! I'm currently stuck deciding between the Berkeley EE M.Eng and Stanford EE MS. Several factors are: I'm going to be focusing on robotics, control, and signal processing (in that order, with just a focus in robotics if possible) Berkeley gave me a $20,000 scholarship I can take out student loans, but aren't thrilled about it Does a masters of engineering look worse in industry than a masters of science? Does Stanford really have more prestige than Berkeley when it comes to EE industry? Would I be able to make long-lasting professional connections better in one of them? Ultimately, does one have more hireability than the other? Thanks
  21. Hi folks, After browsing numerous info on funding resources for DPhil candidates at Oxford, I found that there isn't a separate thread for this year's (Fall 2017) Clarendon Scholarship discussion. So here it is. Please leave a comment if you are waiting for the result coming out (and maybe the degree you applied for) OR if you have received the scholarship. Let's get some peer support! Good luck everyone!
  22. Hello, everyone. We have reps from the Schwarzman Scholars program coming to my school later this month. According to their website, they pay for your tuition for a one year master program at Tsinghua University in Beijing. I know of Tsinghua as being a top university in China (I've heard it being compared to their version of MIT for excelling in STEM), so as far university brand, it sounds compelling, but I've never heard of this program. They have Michelle Obama and previous US Secretary of States all over their page. Any thoughts?
  23. Hi all, Does anyone know of any resources to find scholarships for grad schools? I will be in serious need of financial assistance if I go back to school next year.
  24. Can I ask for more money?

    Hi all, I've found myself in a position for which I am very grateful, but which has also made me super super anxious. I've been accepted to two Master's programs, one in my home country at my undergrad institution (in Canada) and one at a top-tier school in the UK. My undergrad institution isn't super well-renowned, but the program is generally viewed as one of the best in the field in the country. Both schools have offered me funding, along the lines of this: School A (Canada) - $30K for one year; tuition is $11K and cost of living relatively low School B (UK) - $14K for one year; tuition is $30K and cost of living very high In Canada and the US, it's pretty common (from what I gather) to straight up ask for more money for a grad program. I have no idea if this is acceptable or ever done in the UK, and would really, really appreciate any insight from anyone who has done this before (successfully or otherwise) or really anything along these lines. TLDR: Can I negotiate my grad school funding offer from a top-tier UK university? Thanks all!!!
  25. Hey guys, I am an international student who will be coming to the US this fall for a PhD in the Humanities and I need help understanding the offers I am receiving. Most of all: How much money will I actually have after taxes etc.? If Georgetown offers me 28000 for 8 months, what is the net value that I will have in my bank account? I will speak to the director of my program again next week. Do you think I can ask about that? Thanks a bunch for any insight!
