  1. Hello! I have received an admit for MPhil MPP at Cambridge. I am currently waiting for Cambridge Scholarship Trust announcements and YouGov Bursary announcements. Has anyone received any of these scholarship updates yet? Please do let me know. Thank you!
  2. I have been accepted on to Columbia's MSW (at CSSW) for the Fall of 2022. I am a British Citizen on a very low income (unqualified social work) and am looking for sources of funding as I have no savings. I am hoping to find out the following: - sources of external scholarships for doing an MSW as an international student in the US - information about charitable loans that do not require a US citizen co-signer Any help would be much appreciated as I am finding it really hard to get through to anyone at Columbia
  3. I got accepted to a double master's at LSE, but my funding application was declined. They said they'll let us know whether we received any Master's Awards by July, but that seems rather late? Especially seeing as we're expected to accept within 6 weeks of getting admitted and I can only really make decisions on which school to go to depending on financial help. Is anyone else in the same boat?
  4. Hi everyone, I am applying to Speech Pathology masters programs this fall and I was wondering if anyone knew of any programs with good funding/scholarship opportunities? Im based in SC and can only go out of state if I can get some sort of tuition reduction. Heres some of my stats: -Graduating from Clemson University with a 3.79 - Psychology Major, Biology and Youth Development Minor -25 shadowing hours in schools, 40 shadowing hours of a private practice SLP (hoping to get some more hours this fall) -Undergraduate healthcare research with a professor for 3 semesters and 1 summer -Taking the GRE in a few weeks, but my practice tests are around a score of 310 -Hoping to take pre-reqs in Spring Thanks!
  5. I'm applying to MPP programs this fall. I've started trying to look for any non-loan funding options that I could apply for to help me pay for school and haven't really found anything yet. Am I wasting my time searching for other scholarships or am I just not looking in the right place?
  6. In case anyone wants to provide an outsider's perspective, I am torn in a few directions emotionally on my decision, but the logical decision seems obvious. Basics: I graduated from an American uni in May 2020 and had to take a gap year due to exhaustion, covid, and not applying to many grad schools/funding the first time around. My goal has always been to return to the Netherlands to do my masters after doing an exchange semester there during my masters. After being much more prepared for applications this time around, I have been extremely lucky to be offered an Erasmus Mundus scholarship (which I never expected getting) for a Marine Environment master's. This is as much of a full ride as it gets. I also was offered a scholarship from Wageningen University for their MSc Environmental Sciences, but its only a tuition waiver, I would have to take out probably $15-20K in student loans to independently fund my living expenses (already have 30k in loans from my bachelors). The content of the courses are quite similar, with Wageningen offering a slightly more broad curriculum with less courses and the EM programme being more focused on the ocean, but I'm sure I could satisfy my academic curiosities in both programmes, even more so in MER though. A big plus for EM is that I can go anywhere to do my thesis, and I would most likely choose the Netherlands. The choice seems straightforward logically to me, but Wageningen was my top choice before getting the EM scholarship, as I never expected having such an opportunity a year ago. I have a strong emotional pull to the Netherlands, but I think a thesis there would satisfy that. The choice is strange for me and passing up Wageningen makes me feel I'm going against my goals/dreams of the last two years. I can't tell if a Dutch degree would give me much advantage in applying to a phd or job in the Netherlands after my masters as opposed to a fully funded EM program with study in 3-4 countries. Any opinions/insights are extremely welcome. Just trying to give each option thorough consideration.
  7. 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.
  8. Hi! I've looked at quite a few threads for fully funded and partially funded psychology master's degree programs. Does anyone know of any fully or partially funded clinical psychology programs? A lot of the threads had responses of people who did not want to disclose their institution because they didn't want to be identified. If you feel comfortable, feel free to message me, or I can message you. I got into a great clinical psychology master's program in a past cycle. While they did offer a small assistantship, the program did not have tuition waivers or scholarships (tuition was quite expensive and the cost of living was veryyyyy expensive).
  9. Hi! I'm looking for clarification on how to apply for scholarships once you've been accepted. I'm sure each school approaches this differently, but for example, I've been accepted to UT Health San Antonio and on their website it says that in order to apply for scholarships, I "must apply for admission into SHP and be accepted into a program of study (matriculated)". So does this mean I won't be able to apply until I have accepted their offer? It says I need to do this in their student portal but I don't have any of that information and I'm assuming it comes after I accept on my end? I'm definitely going to need scholarships to make this work lol. P.S. I already filled out my FAFSA and added the school. Thanks y'all 😭
  10. 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
  11. Hello Guys, So this is my First Post on these forums. Im a Graduate from Pakistan wanting to apply to Europe generally in fields of architecture. I graduated in 2017 with a CGPA of 2.84 and 2 years work experience. I wanted to know if anyone can help me specify scholarships which apply to me. I went on to the DAAD website but i could not find the exact scholarships that I will be able to apply to. Any help would be amazing. Cheers Guys!
  12. Hi! How tf do I get schools to give me more money (i.e. reevaluate my financial aid and scholarships given)? Like who do I contact, how do I go about it? Do I email a school and say "Hi, you gave me ___ but this other school is giving me____ so could I have more?" lol. I am specifically trying to get more money from UMich and Columbia, but would love to hear anyone's advice/experience from literally any program.
  13. Hi Is there anyone here who is applying / current or ex student of the Masters in Development Studies/ Masters in International Affairs Program at IHEID, Geneva. I had a couple of queries on admissions, scholarships and career prospects. thanks
  14. Hi all, I'm posting the below for my friend who has asked for help but doesn't have a Grad Cafe account: I was just accepted to Suffolk University's Sawyer Business School MBA/MFS program. I haven't seen any previous posts about Sawyer, so I wanted to ask how anyone else on Grad Cafe has gone about asking for scholarship money. I received a scholarship for a certain percentage of tuition, but I'd like to ask/negotiate for more. Any Suffolk or MBA-specific tips would be helpful! Thanks!
  15. Hi folks, I'm posting the below for my friend who has asked for help but doesn't have a Grad Cafe account: I was just accepted to Suffolk University's Sawyer Business School MBA/MFS program. I haven't seen any previous posts about Suffolk/Sawyer, so I wanted to ask if anyone else here has been accepted, and if so, if they are planning on accepting!
  16. Hi everyone! I have been a listening and spoken language teacher of the deaf for 5 years and absolutely love my job! I work closely with speech therapists in my current position, and am very interested in pursuing a degree in speech-language pathology in order to expand both my knowledge and career opportunities within the field. That being said, I feel rather intimidated by prerequisites (I already hold a masters in deaf education and may be able to transfer credits, but believe I would still have more classes to take), graduate school admissions, the GRE, and mostly the tuition and costs of graduate school. I was wondering if anyone has any graduate program suggestions, knows of scholarship opportunities that could apply to me, or just advice in general. Thank you in advance for your help!
  17. Hello everyone! I am applying for a Doctorate in Psychology at UBC. I have pretty much completed my application but for the funding section, though I am late to apply for a lot of the available scholarships, the site says I can apply for it after joining if I am accepted. Also, UBC has a minimum funding policy for all accepted graduates. There is a section in the funding part of the application that asks if I would join if I didn't get funding and I can choose 'likely' or 'unlikely'. Since I have funds available to fund at least the first year, after which I can apply for funding, I have chosen 'likely'. I am hoping I will be able to apply for funding late if I get accepted. My question is, would this factor into the selection process? I have listed all the scholarships I would be applying for in the future in my application. Is anyone else applying for PhDs in psychology at UBC? Help!
  18. Hi everyone! I'm an undergraduate SLP student and I am about to complete my first semester at a cal state since I'm a community college transfer student. I feel behind because I did not put in the effort to meet with professors all semester and get to know them. I participate and ask questions in class every once and a while, but I'm simply just another student. However, I need a faculty member for programs and scholarships to be a recommender by late January. How should I approach them without being too pushy? I understand it's very late & I should have been putting in the effort. Any tips?
  19. Hey everyone! I wrote a little thing about my journey through my 20s, getting through graduate school, and now dealing with my hefty amount of student loans. Views and shares help me win. So Read away! Thank you! https://www.studentloanplanner.com/speech-language-pathologist-helping-others/
  20. I am applying to PhDs in Finance for Fall 2019. I want to see if I can secure some external funding before starting my PhD. I haven't found much information, besides Fulbright. I am a permanent resident in the US, so any scholarship/funding opportunity that has as a prerequisite being a US Citizen is out of the question. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
  21. 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.
  22. Hey guys! First things first, is there anyone else who applied to EUPADRA and has been short-listed and invited for the interview? Second - I have got a small concern, maybe someone can help me out in resolving it. I received a full scholarship from IMCEERES and I have to reply to them by April 9th. Also, I am waiting for results from EPS next week, as well as MA in Human Rights at CEU (Central European University, Budapest). The problem is that according to those who already study EUPADRA, even after the interview they are usually notified only at the end of May about the scholarships. So I am afraid to reject IMCEERES and EPS with CEU (if I get scholarships from them) and then also get rejected by EUPADRA. Because EUPADRA is my top priority. Hope I explained it clearly. Any suggestions? Thank you in advance. Kind regards.
  23. 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.
  24. I'm new here, so I apologize if I ask too many questions! Basically, I'm currently a senior at NYU and in May I'll be graduating with a B.A. in Math and Psychology. Going into my senior year, I had been planning on applying to several Ph.D. programs in Data Science and Statistics and my career goal was to be a data scientist. However, upon meeting with the professor whose lab I do research in, he stated that it would be very difficult for me to get into any Ph.D. program with only a year of undergraduate research experience. So, I applied to 6 Masters programs and the Ph.D. in Data Science program at NYU (this has been my top choice since sophomore year so no way I wasn't going to give it a shot!). Fast forward to now, I made it up to the interview for the Ph.D. program, but yesterday I got an email saying I was offered admission into the Master's program in the Center for Data Science, and that I am not eligible for any scholarships. I have also been admitted to the Master's of Engineering in Computer Science program at Cornell Tech, as well as a couple of other M.S. programs at NYU, and I'm waiting to hear back from the three other programs. Here's where my questions come up. As I think about it more and more, the program at Cornell Tech becomes more appealing. For one thing, I think it's a more versatile degree. They have data science courses I could take, and with the degree itself I'd be a candidate for software engineer positions. As such, after completing the degree I'd likely be able to go down either route, albeit the data science route would be a bit tougher with this degree than with the M.S. in Data Science. However, I've also found jobs in software engineering to be more appealing lately. I think around my junior year of college I started to realize a software engineer career seemed like a good fit for my interests, but by that point I thought it was too late in the game to switch routes unless I got another Bachelor's in Comp Sci - who knew! Also, I've been completely lost at where to look for scholarships. I applied to one that Cornell Tech sent out the application to, but I haven't received any merit scholarships from the programs I've been admitted to. That being said, even without scholarships, the Cornell Tech degree would be approximately $8,000 less right off the bat. Additionally, it's a one year program, as opposed to the one at NYU which is a two year program. Is it presumptuous of me to think it'd be reasonable to take out $40-50k in loans, with the expectation that with the Computer Science engineering degree I'll likely be able to make decent money as a software engineer in NYC not long after graduating next spring? If it helps, I'll be graduating from undergrad with about $10,500 in loans, and if I do get a well-paying job after grad school my plan is to live as if I'm making $40k a year until my loans are paid off. I'm the first in my family to go to college, let alone grad school, so any advice is greatly appreciated! I've heard that some companies will pay for you to get a M.Eng., but honestly at this point I'd rather get the degree first since I don't think I'm qualified for many tech jobs currently. As a recap, my two main questions are: 1. Is it a smart decision to do a Master of Engineering in C.S. at Cornell Tech when I'm open to becoming either a software engineer or data scientist? 2. Is it reasonable to assume I'll be able to get a decent job with a M.Eng. degree in C.S. and that I'd be able to pay of ~$60k in loans in a reasonable amount of time? Thank you!
  25. So I was accepted to Boston University today, which is my top choice, but with no mention of a scholarship. I see on the results page others have been offered scholarships with their admission. I also was accepted to George Washington University with a $42,000 scholarship. I would much rather attend BU, but cannot without some funding. A few people recommended (politely) using the scholarship from GW school as leverage for receiving funding at other schools. Anyone heard of this actually being a thing? If so, what's the best way of doing it? Thanks for the help!
