Email the dean and ask if it's possible to get a scholly. Explain how much you love your school and would rather stay and the money would make a difference.

That seemed to work for me. I just said I wanted to speak with you (Dean) about potential scholarship opportunities. Then I briefly stated that "I wanted you to know that I have received a transfer acceptance and I am considering a move next fall. However, I have truly enjoyed my experience at X school and would ultimately like to complete my degree here."

I haven't received one yet but she didn't write back a pissed off defensive email so I'm guessing that worked.
