garibaldi Posted February 9, 2011 Share Posted February 9, 2011 Hi - I applied to a state school and they are giving me tuition +18K stipend + insurance, for the first two years. This includes working for about 15-20 hrs a week as a TA (which is ok by me) In the next 3 years, funding is not guaranteed. You have to apply for graduate research assistantships, and fellowships. Also tuition is not covered in the next three years (as I am an international student, this means generating 20K just for tuition from the school or external sources - this is what I am worried about). I will not take a loan for undertaking a PhD, so I have to be confident that I will be able to cover all my expenses through RA or fellowships. Typically, how hard is this? What do you all think? Fair deal or not? Would you accept such a deal? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
