Yes, it is in the same letter that tells you that you have been accepted:

Dear Applicant,

... congratulations you have been admitted ...

... proud to award you with a scholarship of $X,000 yearly if you maintain a GPA of 2.95 or above ...

Yours truly,
Awesome people accepting you to school and giving you free money

Need-based aid (awards/grants) is very rare for graduate level degrees.

Anyone going to the ASW? The $400 stipend will only cover my flight out there, so I may consider couchsurfing? Portland seems like a friendly city! If any other poor college students want to split a hotel room, I'd also consider that! Just requested to join the facebook group, so I'd be happy to chat on there if anyone else is in a similar position.

Is there a stipend for every student? If so, I must've missed it. Or is it a scholarship deal?

It only applies if it said something about it in your admissions package.

Sorry. :( I'm not sure how they decided - it may have been for scholarship recipients? Either way, a trip to Portland is always the credited response :D

When is ASW? send me a PM depending on when it is I might have a couch available. Although I do live in NE Portland, not too close to LC (maybe I would be going as well though).

That's surprising 3.3 and 173 got you no monies. Did you apply late in the cycle?

I just went to again try to log into the accepted student page and was now asked for a username and password. Wasn't it just asking my year of birth and something else? Has this process just made me loopy or has anyone else experienced this?

The username and password are the same things you used before (DOB and whatever). I don't know why the page changed, but people have been logging in with the same login info.

Apologies if this is a redundant and/or obvious question, but

My letter says "you have been awarded a Dean's Scholarship for Excellence in the amount of $26,000."

It makes no mention of "per year." Is anyone else's written like this? Does this mean $26,000 per year, or spread over three?

It should then go on to say something like "...automatically renewed each year as long as you [meet these stipulations]" in the next paragraph. So yes, $26K/year.

Um, no money with a 173?

Suddenly I don't feel so bad about not getting any money...

So I had a date change on 1/21, haven't heard anything, but can't get into the admitted students page. That seems like bad news... but then again where the heck is my letter saying no?

Anyone else in a similar boat?

Any idea what it means when the requirements checklist disappears after one's third date change?

Mine did that, and I got an acceptance. Try logging into the admitted student's site.
