Does Michigan offer travel stipends to admitted students? I emailed the admissions office on Tuesday, but they haven't replied. I'm going to call tomorrow, but I am curious about whether any of you received a stipend; if so, how much did you receive?
Well, that's a buzzkill. Thanks for the response.
Actually, I petitioned for a subsidy (based on financial need) and got $200 and the hotel fee waived. Maybe it's too late, but here is what I was told that prompted me to petition:
"Because we are already subsidizing the cost of the hotel, and providing all meals, we regret that we are able to provide travel assistance only to those who demonstrate dire financial need. If you feel that you fit this category, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
explaining why you feel you need financial assistance, along with an itemized estimate of your travel costs (plane fare, etc.) to and from Ann Arbor, and we will be happy to consider your request."
