Living stipends

Postby superhopefulwoo » Tue Mar 05, 2013 3:17 am

Im curious... Is it a long shot to ask schools for living stipends on top of full tuition or has anyone accomplished this without some titled scholarship or PI fellowship?

There are tax issues associated with living stipends and I think that's part of what makes them rare. I don't have any experience asking for them, and I don't personally know anyone who does. I doubt you'd have any success doing it, but "the worst they can say is no."
