longforit Posted February 28, 2014 Share Posted February 28, 2014 (edited) I posted this in the RESEARCH forum. I thought things might be different across disciplines so here I post it again: I'm doing my M.A. thesis research, which is a psychological/speech-perception experiment and that means--pay the participants. The expense is estimated $400-$500 and I will cover 60% of it by myself. I just want to ask is it common to fund one's own project (with relatively big budget) or usually there is fund sources (I have my program cover about 40% of it but I still need to pay hundreds), or it just varies from school to school. Not complaint. Just curious. Comments? P.S. people in the RESEARCH forum suggested I should seek funding from my PI's lab. But I suspect a Master student may not have the privilege to do so, especially I'm leaving to take my PhD elsewhere--at least it's a fact that it is my PI who asked me to seek fundings from elsewhere and I know PhDs (I don't know maybe undergrad's project too) working in her lab do get funds from the lab. Is it the issue of MA vs PhD students? Edited February 28, 2014 by longforit Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
