You can ask, but the school has no incentive to give you a scholarship increase. They've already reported your numbers, and it's not worth it to throw more money at you just to prevent you from transferring.

has it been done? do you have to threaten to transfer? how can it be done?
Depends on what school your at. I know for a fact some lower ranked schools will value your GPA (and therefore positive employment prospects) enough to give you what you want. Or if nothing else an increase in scholly. While it probably would give you better leverage to ask once you have a transfer acceptance - couldn't hurt to ask either way.
