Perhaps someone here can provide some much needed information:
A am in my second year of my PhD program, surviving on a teaching
assistantship. At the beginning of each new semester I go further
in debt with the Student Loan program (and hope that it stays solvent).
Financial aid for graduate students appears to be almost non-existant.
I supplement my stint at school by playing "Charles-in-charge" for two
pre-teens for a semi-free rent situation. This still leaves precious
little room for financial crisis and does nothing to aid in the HUGE
debt I am building for myself at the end fo grad school.
Does ANYONE know of any scholarship/grant/etc. programs for neuroscience
I am single, blue eyed, blonde haired and male so the few minority
scholarships available are also out of reach. I am simply a bright, hard
working, active researcher who loves teaching and research. I believe I can
make a valid contribution to the field and am in fact preparing two bodies of
data for publication as I type this message. Is there any assistance for
a dedicated, destitute, non-minority, graduate student out there?!?
Thanks in advance!
