drahton Posted July 16, 2014 Share Posted July 16, 2014 Hello everyone, I have been accepted to the CS PhD program at Stony Brook university this Fall. I received an offer of 17K TA and a 4K fellowship for the first year only. However I still don't get some points: When the offer says 17K$ per academic year, does that mean distributed over 12 months or 9 months? I'm interested in this because If it is over 12 months, then my monthly income is about 1400$, which means I cannot attend the university at all (apartment alone is 1169$ ! ) How the fellowship is usually awarded? direct payment at the beginning of the semester or distributed over months? I tried emailing the department, financial agents, calling, but alas no answers, and late replies, sometimes they took 2 weeks to reply to a single question and currently they are not replying. There is a danger that I might cancel my plan to go there because of their late replies. Anyone with similar experience or admitted to the same program I would be thankful if you can share your advice/experience. drahton 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
