hi all. I've been admitted to a PhD program and I'm getting an ok stipend, but relative to the city I'm moving to I'll barely be making it by. Do cost of living scholarships even exist? Are there things that I can apply for to subsidize cost of living?

FYI I'm on a student visa

Ask if you can talk to some grad students currently in the program about how they make ends meet. If you live with someone your expenses will go down. Taking on debt to complete a PhD is not a good idea.
