I've got a merit based scholarship from my university but didn't receive as much in funds as I needed, is there a way to negotiate with the university for more?

It might sound greedy but I'm so blessed to have been offered a place at the school in the first place so I don't want to have to decline the offer just because money is low at the moment. Also, I'm international so a lot of the other ways to fund my education are limited (i.e- I can't apply for FAFSA or student loans). #college #money #scholarships #admissions #international-students

Hi Aye Marie,

Yes there are ways you can negotiate with the university. Most people think that colleges are set on that one number that they gave you originally but colleges will sometimes negotiate with you. Just have a sit down with the dean of the college and explain why you need some more money. You have to have a very convincing reason as why you want them to pay more otherwise it is a very low chance that they will take your reason to heart and do something about it. There are also ways that you can earn money for college like community service projects and other things like that.
