  1. I have received an acceptance to an Erasmus Mundus MA with a fully-funded scholarship, covering everything from living expenses and tuition to plane tickets + a monthly allowance. However, I really do not believe the program to be aligned with my research interests at all. I am still awaiting the decision for my first priority program that offers a curriculum that is perfect for me and is a historically prestigious and acclaimed University. That program has no fees either, however I would have to cover the living expenses out of my own pocket, which will be challenging as an international student. I would of course still try to work part-time and secure some funding at least for the second year by applying for scholarship programs (the deadlines for this year have long passed sadly), however that is nothing concrete. I feel really conflicted right now because I don't know if choosing my academically desired program would be worth the financial hassle, when I have a mid-tier fully funded option, which only very remotely relates to my research interests. I am also unsure how I feel about Erasmus programs, as the rankings of the involved institutions are quite low, whereas my priority University is within the top 100 worldwide. Would the rankings make a difference in the long run given that I am Humanities/Art History major? What should I do? Any advice is appreciated, thanks in advance!
  2. Is anyone else waiting for Erasmus Mundus application results? What programme/s did you apply to? How have you been handling the wait? Has anyone been accepted/waitlisted/rejected already? Since there are no Erasmus Mundus 2019 threads, let's talk!
  3. Anyone having a list of all scholarships that are applicable to Indians interested in pursuing MS for the Fall 2022 batch? I'm considering my options as some US colleges are wayy too expensive after including living costs. Profile: 8.30/10 CGPA (B.Tech) from a Tier-1.5/2 university Have a research paper published at a national conference, and an undergraduate thesis. Both relevant to my field.
  4. 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)
  5. Hey guys! I'm waiting for the results of the Hodgson Law Scholarships at the University of Liverpool. Does anyone know when the results will be out? Did anyone applied at all? LOL I'm trying to find another applicants but I'm having a hard time. Thanks.
  6. Hello! I applied for a Research MPhil to Cambridge in December, as per the funding deadline. I have received an offer and I was wondering whether it makes sense to accept my offer while I am waiting to hear about funding. Would accepting my offer work in favour or against me in terms of funding? What I wouldn't want is for me to accept the offer and discourage funding committee from offering me funding because accepting the offer might indicate to them that I would attend regardless of funding. The opposite is also possible: accepting the offer encourages the funding committee to offer me funding because they would know for sure that I would attend and that the funding offer won't go to waste. I am confused about what to do because even though I want to attend Cambridge I do not want to discourage the funding committee from offering me funding. What should I do? (the deadline to accept/decline the offer is end of July this year)
  7. Anyone heard anything for McNamara or AAUW grants? 2021-2022 program.
  8. Hey folks, Have anyone applied for Erasmus Mundus programs this year? Which ones? How is your selection process going? Cheers, Roman
  9. 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!
  10. Has anyone tried to negotiate for more scholarship money at the Lynch School at Boston College? I was recently accepted into their Mental Health Counseling Program but am hoping there's some wiggle room in my funding package. If you've tried, were you successful? What'd you do?

  12. Hi. Has anyone heard back from Hertie on their scholarship/financial aid decisions yet? In the absence of any scholarship, what other funding avenues are you considering especially if you're an Indian applicant? Would love to connect to discuss! Thanks!
  13. The Emerging Leaders in the Americas Program (ELAP) scholarships are facilitated through institutional collaborations and student exchange agreements between Canadian and Latin American or Caribbean institutions. These agreements are created between colleges, technical or vocational institutions and universities. I am JuanD (Colombia) and I successfully obtained an ELAP scholarship on 2014. Now I would like to help all the interest one in order to get this great grant in Canada. Please don't hesitate in contacting me. http://www.urosario.edu.co/Home/Principal/noticias/Internacionalizacion/Beca-ELAP/ https://www.semana.com/contenidos-editoriales/especiales-regionales-canada/articulo/universidades-canadienses-ejemplo-de-calidad-academica/530518 Best,

  15. Aside from FASFA and the scholarships offered by the schools I am applying to, what are some legit websites that offer scholarships for grad students? I am not looking for loans.
  16. Hey guys! Saw there wasn't any forum on AAUW International Fellowship 2020-21 cycle. The results were released on April 15, 2020. Did anyone here receive it? I was designated as an alternate and wondering what are my chances...
  17. Does anyone have any info/a review on the Teach NYC Scholarship? Any info regarding personal, or if you know anyone and/or just heard about it in general. I'm having a hard time debating if I should apply to a school because they offer that, or just go with the school that is more expensive--pretty much just don't know if its worth to apply to or not. ANY info helps!!

  19. Hey all. I was wondering if any graduate students have had any luck with finding outside scholarships? Or know of any good places to apply to? I have tried sites like fastweb and scholarships.com but never get any of the big ones I have applied to. I figured it wouldn't hurt to try to find some kind of funding out there given my hefty tuition bill lol.
  20. I am looking for advice from anyone who has tried/succeeded in negotiating your aid package. I would appreciate strategies and feedback from anyone who has done this, regardless of their program. However, my admission is to DU Korbel for IDEV. I received scholarships for 39% of tuition and an offer for an hourly "aide" position.

  24. Hi everyone, I am new to this forum, and I am trying to get some insights for the scholarship application. This particular education doctor program asked two additional questions (optional): "Scholarship decisions take into consideration a range of factors related to the environment and retention of a diverse student body at the College, including geography, origin, socio-economic status, and educational background. Please provide any additional information pertinent to the items listed above." "share any additional information that you would like us to have as we make scholarship allocations." I am white, from a middle-class family, my parents hold bachelor degrees, and I have already obtained a master in education degree, so there is not much to share about for the first question. However, I do need some scholarship. I mean it is a doctoral program (EDD), paying the full tuition will be such a financial burden for me even though my family can support me and I can acquire some student loan. So, what should I include for the second question? Currently, I am just repeating my vision for education and my expectations for the program. I will be grateful for any information you can provide.
  25. I have an MA in Clinical Psychology from an Indian university. I am planning to apply for a second Masters - MA in Psychology at Brock U and MSc in Psychology at Western U. One step that I am the most confused about is the scholarship application. Can you direct me to a step-by-step procedure for scholarship application as an international student? I have so many questions, but I don't know if they are the right questions. The following are ones I can think of right now: - Should I start the scholarship application before or after college application? - What do I write in the university application about scholarships? - How do I approach a university to nominate me for, say OGS, when they have not accepted me yet? - How to I fill THIS FORM when I don't know who would take me in? - Do I have to apply for funding before applying to the university or is it possible to apply after getting enrolled? ---- I am sorry if the questions sound dumb, I really have no idea about this process.
