cabraloca Posted March 14, 2017 Share Posted March 14, 2017 So basically, I got accepted into my dream school + dream program. They are offering full tuition remission, healthcare + a monthly stipend thru TAships which are enough to get by. However, the first check comes in October and I need to be there by mid-August, get me a new laptop, books and school supplies, as well as pay for a security deposit + two months of rent & food before I see their money. I've figured I will need around 5k to start graduate school. The program I've been accepted to is Gender and Women's Studies. Most of my work and research has been volunteer work and organizing for a very young collective of queer & trans people so money is not a plenty-- is it okay to ask them if they could cover my airfare for the beginning of the school year? Or is that completely inappropiate, unthought of, and I should just open up a GoFundMe instead and sell my body? Please let me know if you have any experiences similar to these. I have a phone interview to set the details to my move to the US next week so I really want to have my thoughts organized by then. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
