Phoebecaulfield Posted November 12, 2013 Share Posted November 12, 2013 I deferred at NYU for their Master's program in English and American Lit. I'm slated to begin there in August. I deferred because (as you may know) the program offers z-e-r-o funding; however, they have a nice program that offers to double any external aid you may receive. So, I thought that I'd use this year to try to get myself some external funding so that I could, at the very least, minimize the amount of loans I will be taking out. A couple of questions: 1. Does anyone know of good scholarships, grants, external fellowships, or even good resources to find these opportunities? I am going to be in an English Master's program... I've noticed (can't say I'm surprised) that most funding out there is for more in-demand fields of study, like nursing and accounting and rocket science. I will be thrilled for any suggestions! 2. I've been reading a lot, in an attempt to keep my brain from congealing into a mass of Nutella and cartoons in the year I'm out of school, but what else will keep me on point for grad school next year? I'm worried that I'm going to lose an edge academically. In fact, I'm pretty sure that my writing ability is already slipping... Help!! Thanks to anyone for their advice. Also, if there's anyone reading this who is familiar with the program... I would love any information about it or advice that is unrelated to my questions as well! Cheers!
