Travel stipends to T14 schools

Postby Christinabruin » Sat Dec 10, 2016 8:44 pm

So I'm wondering which T14 schools give travel stipends to admitted students? Is there a method to request travel stipends if they don't offer it? I didn't get any info on them from my acceptance packages so I'm hoping someone here can provide some answers. Thanks!

If you do a forum search you'll probably find an answer. I know people have compiled this data in past years.

UVA does, on a sliding scale depending where you are traveling from. Look at this ASW pdf to see how much you would get, the numbers haven't changed.

Kinda amusing that WV applicants get $250 while VA ones get 0. There are definitely several parts of WV that a significantly closer to Cville than certain parts of Virginia (Franklin county for WV, Blacksburg and VA beach/Hampton roads in general for VA come to mind).

Not complaining at all though, it's actually pretty convenient that they have clear policies on this instead of making applicants ask and then (possibly) arbitrarily giving them out. Even if it does mean they won't be giving me any gas money:P

Hahaha I noticed that too! I would assume VA residents got $50 for gas money at least lol

How much did NYU say they'd give? ETA possible RC fail, but scope of operator is not clear

Unless they've changed it, NYU does travel stipends based on your need-based aid calculation. The catch is that (especially if you applied for a named scholarship) this can delay your visit until they have an answer from financial aid on the reimbursement.

I thought I read somewhere (either on TLS or on NYU's website) that if you are invited to interview for a named scholarship, they will automatically provide a travel stipend?

I'm curious to see the results of this thread. I live in MN so the vast majority of the schools I applied to are far enough away that I'll need to fly.

FWIW, in the voicemail I got from Dean of Admissions Edward Tom at Berkeley, he said funds were available for admitted students to visit. Nothing more specific than that, though, but I plan to reach out to the school once I have an idea of when I'll be able to head out to Cali.

That is the case at NYU. But for any lesser mortals who were not invited to interview for those scholarships, you have to qualify.

Both H and S give stipends, but you have to "prove need" and even then the stipends aren't great if your traveling any considerable distance.

"Not sure of policy since they have not yet revealed."

Yeah my sentence was unclear. :) I meant both are unclear.


Not sure how much they offer, but I do know Duke only offers the stipend for their March ASW, so if you can't make it then and come a different time to visit you're out of luck.
