21: Negotiating a PhD Funding Offer
Have you been admitted to a PhD program? Perhaps more than one program? Are you wondering if and how to start negotiating a PhD funding offer? If so, please listen. Long story short, no matter what offer you receive you can always ask for more.
I understand that in many cases we may feel so grateful and humble to have received an offer that it feels selfish to ask for more. Sometimes students worry that if they ask for more, the program will change their mind and take away the offer. But in actuality it’s normal and critical to ask for more funding whether that’s in the form of an increase in your living stipend, summer funding, or funding to assist with relocation expenses. Any little bit that they give after the initial offer can make a big difference in your graduate school experience.
