Architecture-Queen Posted February 12, 2014 Share Posted February 12, 2014 (edited) Hi everyone, I just got accepted for PhD at Clemson University, my POI informed me that I'm considered for funding and if I want to get more details about my funding package I should contact the program director because he is in charge of allocating available funds between new PhD students. Now, should I contact the director or should I wait for him to send an official funding letter, If I contact him explaining my financial situation, I'm in desperate need of enough income to raise 3 kids, will this increase my chances of getting a good funding package, or will I seem like I'm begging him for money?. Is there anything I can do at the moment to increase my chances of getting a good financial package. My POI recommended that I study a specific computer programming language because he intends to use my help oversee undergrad students for a small coding project, so I already started last night and I intend to do the best I can to master this coding language before the fall, do you guys think if I mention this to my POI I will have better chances of getting a good funding package? I apologize if this question seems silly , I just want to do my PhD at Clemson really bad and have a good funding package at the same time.
