Travel Stipend?

Postby cassini007 » Thu Mar 22, 2007 2:05 am

Is it a common practice for schools to pay for your visit? So far, I received a $200 stipend from Case Western Law, but from no other schools that I've gotten in to.

Are any other schools so generous to cover at least a portion of your expenses?

Off the top of my head, I know Boalt, Cornell, Cardozo, and Lewis & Clark offer travel stipends. I'm sure other schools do too.

You might try requesting a travel stipend even if a school doesn't offer it outright. I've heard of folks doing this successfully.

Duke covers I think $250 of the plane ticket. 'Fraid that's all I know.

W&L reimburses up to $200 and puts you up in a room.
Minnesota reimburses up to $200 if you matriculate

You can always call and ask...say you want to visit the school but are concerned about the costs involved.

Only to select applicants with high #'s.. I asked and was told there's no way to apply for the stipend, you would receive a letter if selected.

I live in the state of Texas, and they offered a $200 travel stipend.


Considering I know of people who got a higher scholarship and didn't get a travel stipend, I don't know that it has to do with numbers.

Anybody know anything about Cornell's travel stipend? I applied for it, but judging from some former threads, it sounds like they are stingy with their stipend money. Anybody gotten a stipend from them?

Is it the same Stipend for International Students, meaning do they have a flat reimbursement? I'll be coming from Ireland.

How does Vanderbilt's travel stipend work? Is it need based, distance based, etc?
