Please, sir, may I have more?


Recommended Posts

I'm sorry if this has been covered before, but do any of you have suggestions for how to ask for more funding from your school?

my situation:

recently accepted to PhD program at private school that typically doesn't offer much funding to students

35K year tuition

10K scholarship in the works

2-8K grant possible

so ~15K in funding is good, but I am still on the verge of saying no because in sum, it's a bad financial decision and i will consider alternative options. If they don't offer ~15K in funding then i will certainly have to ask for more money or decline the offer. There are other funding opportunities available on campus, but i wont know about them until i actually get there, long after i've decided to accept/decline.

they are very interested in me and I have an excellent record of producing research, so i think i have a leg to stand on.

any ideas are most appreciated.
