  1. Hey guys, I was offered a place at the University of Bath to do my masters in Microbiology. The only problem is that I can't really afford the cost of paying as an international student. I was looking online and mostly found scholarships for 3rd world country students. So I was wondering if anyone knew of any scholarships that US students can apply to. Thanks!
  2. Hey everyone,,, I'm currently looking for PhD scholarships abroad. My desired research is multi-disciplinary & specific, so it's not easy to find professors who are specialized & willing to supervise me. It's something about human cultural evolution, & children's value formation. My current scheme in searching for scholarships is: search for professors who have relevant research interests --> find their universities --> find out if their universities offer fully-funded PhD programs & stipends so I can apply to them --> email the professor to see if she's interested, so I can apply to the university. However, sometimes I find announcements about university scholarships, like for ex., the Swiss government scholarships for international students. Do you think if I apply to such scholarships, & if I get accepted, would it be easy to find professors then (assigned in the university(s) of that scholarship) who are specialized & willing to work with me in that kind of research? Or should I only stick to the first scheme of applying to universities?
  3. 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!
  4. Hi everyone. I am a prospective applicant for MA philosophy at York University for fall next year 2018. The admission window would soon be open for 2018. Please, what is the possibility of getting full funding for grad study at York, as is stated on their website? Thanks guys!
  5. I've heard that applying mid year to Australian unis (for the semester that starts in late July, early August) is a bad idea, both for your chances of getting in and for getting a scholarship. Is there any truth to this?
  6. JJ/WBGSP 2017

    Anyone from Pakistan who got any response from JJ/WBGSP secretariat.
  7. MSW Scholarships

    Anyone know of any reputable websites to apply to scholarships? i've heard of scholarship points but I feel like they're a scam. Thanks!
  8. So, I'm applying for scholarships (yahoo, it's that time of year!), and for Canadian scholarships, I have to include my supervisor(s)' CVs. One of my professors created a paradigm that is widely used in my field. My lab partner and I now use this protocol to teach people in the field in several countries including Asia, South America, North America and Europe. This includes training people (online, in person if they visit, and making sure everybody implements it exactly as it should), helping them create their study protocol (e.g., population, how to approach a certain group, etc), implementing the protocol (e.g., feasibility, apparatus sourcing), troubleshooting (because things usually go wrong), etc.. Here's the problem! My professor then takes the names of all the people my lab partner and I train and work with and puts it on his CV as people he personally trains and works with and also reports this as output on his grants, leaving both our names out. He phrases his CV as "I personally (insert every thing my partner and I do + Professor designing paradigm 15 years ago + every RA's work 15 years since then)." In reality, the extent of his involvement currently is he developed the original paradigm and he answers our questions if we have trouble or hit a dead end. He also signs off the permission slip saying we have permission to train. I fully acknowledge that without him, this paradigm doesn't exist and we wouldn't be doing our work today if he didn't design the paradigm and give permission for the use. All I am saying is it would be nice if he included us as part of the team doing the work. Does this mean I cannot include any of the work I have been doing in my CV? Will I just look like a big fat liar? N.B., I have to include my professor's CV in my application.
  9. Paying for Grad School

    What is the best way to pay for grad school without going too far into debt with loans? I don't have much saved up right now and still hav a couple thousand in loans from undergrad, and now I need to pay tuition and living expenses in a new state. That means plane tickets to come home, too. I'lll definitely get a job, but any sort of help or resources would be great!
  10. Greetings, I've recently been accepted to the Institute of Fine Arts at NYU for art history and archaeology. I was wondering if anyone had any advice or ideas on how to find scholarships or other kind of non-loan assistance for graduate school. In addition to Stafford and Direct PLUS loans that are available, I will also be taking part in federal work-study and as much school employment I can find/handle. I understand that there aren't as many graduate scholarships as undergraduate, but I figured I might as well give it a shot. Again, any information would be appreciated, thank you!
  11. USC MSW VAC Scholarships

    I just received my acceptance letter (email) without any information about financial aid. I wanted to ask: has anyone NOT received ANY grants or scholarships for this program? I applied the last week of February incase anyone was wondering the duration to hear back on your application.
  12. UT Dallas Funding

    Does anyone know if UT Dallas has opportunities for scholarships/funding? I know that they sometimes award in-state tuition wavers to out of state students, but do they offer anything else such as merit-based scholarships, GA positions, or RA positions to graduate students?
  13. 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!
  14. Funding

    In order to be considered for scholarships (graduate assistantships offered by the school and things of that sort), did you need to have submitted a FAFSA report? Or is that after you are admitted and then you submit the FAFSA to then receive funding? Is it too late to already send it in to be considered for funding? I'm just a little confused...there was no indication on my application to send in FAFSA before the grad application deadline and some applications asked about tax info but I thought that was it....?
  15. Does anyone know if scholarship awards come out after the initial acceptance letter is received, or do these usually come together?
  16. Hey guys! Anyone have any idea when we typically to hear about funding (scholarships, TAs, etc.) from schools? Is this usually in the acceptance email? I've heard some schools wait even till after the commitment deadline :/ I know this varies between schools, so if anyone knows specifically about GW, BU, MGH, UVA, or UW, that would be great! Thanks!
  17. 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.
  18. Engineering Funding for Ph.D.

    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!
  19. Dear All, It's great to read the amazing conversations and the wonderfully supportive ecosystem at Grad Cafe. I recently applied for a Master's in International Education, International Education policy, and Internation Education development at 4 different universities all based on the East coast, USA. Not all schools provide a merit scholarship and graduate assistantships are hard to find. Are there any Scholarships apart from the ones by the school that I could apply to as an Indian national applying for Grad school in the US? I'd be happy to exchange resources! Thank you.
  20. Foundation Directory?

    Hi All, I'm searching for additional funding as a U.S. Citizen in a Canadian doctoral program (Interdisciplinary Humanities). I'm trying to find smaller scholarships that are available through charitable foundations or trusts. I have run across a ton of foundation directories for the UK and some other countries, but haven't been able to find anything terribly useful for the US or CA. Anyone know some good places to look for this kind of thing? Or, alternatively, some good scholarships for me to look into? (I'm applying for OSG, inelligible for SSRHC because I'm not a CA citizen, missed the deadline for Fulbright this year- I applied and started my program very late in the game so now I'm playing catch-up). Thanks in advance for any help!
  21. Hi there, I'm a kiwi who did my undergraduate in New Zealand and Australia (two degrees). I'm currently looking for options for financing my studies in the USA for grad school in engineering. Apart from the Fullbright (which everyone seems to know only about), are there other options for financing/funding both my tuition and accommodation? Any helpful advise would be much appreciated Cheers,
  22. Hi all. I just got accepted to KU for the MSIT program with a focus on Infomation Security and Assurance. I'm going to be applying for the CyberCorps initiative through OPM through my school and was curious if anyone else is using this route for funding and how the process is working or not for them.
  23. Hi, I want to apply to a MsC./PhD. program in applied statistics in the US. Is there something like a list of universities and the term (spring or fall) in which they offer scholarships? If so, can you provide the reference. BTW, if you are answering this, can you take a look at this too? Best, R
  24. I was looking into Columbia's Ph.D and Ed.D programs and was unable to find clear information on how Teacher's College handles Ph.D funding. On the website it says "Ph.D. students normally receive the annual prevailing stipend and appropriate tuition and health fees for five years, provided that they remain in good academic standing and, in the case of student officers, have discharged responsibly their pedagogical or research duties." Other programs that I have looked at have more or less stated explicitly that all Ph.D programs have their tuition covered for 5 years. Does anyone know if tuition is covered for Ed.D programs/Ph.D programs at Teachers' College? What's the funding like (if any) for these programs? Thanks for your help!
  25. Hi there, I've had some trouble finding full or largely funded MFA programs in graphic design (or related field- e.g. digital arts, digital media, etc). I'd be interested programs abroad too, ideally in an English speaking country, but curious to hear any leads either way. So far I've seen Yale seems to suggest they'll help you out as much as possible so you don't have to take out loans. I've seen MICA provides 20%-60% funding. UCLA's Design Media Arts MFA is fully funded, but it's a little closer to fully fledged fine arts program than a design one. Would love to hear if anyone has any ideas!
