How to negotiate grad school funding offers?


Recommended Posts

I am admitted to three schools for MA program and all three have offered scholarships, two full and one half.

My top choice is the one which has offered half scholarship, how can I politely negotiate this matter with the admission office? How can I ask if they can increase or offer a full scholarship? 

Does anyone have any experience on this? 

I can imagine the wordings and the litter of an e-mail for such an issue must be unique, I would be extremely grateful if anyone could share anything with me.

While I am yet to be a grad student I do know that with some of the programs I am looking at MS students can request additional fundings (through the advisor and/or department) that generally seem to come in the form of odd jobs around campus (working in the program director's office, for the DGS, in the library, etc.).  


Not sure if that is what you are looking for.  It will not hurt to ask your advisor.
