What does a statement of financial need look like? [#permalink] New post 04 Mar 2010, 23:50
A school I've been admitted to has asked me to write a statement of financial need, and I have no clue what these usually look like.

How much detail do you go into? How long should they be? What should the tone be? Should it be structured like a letter, or an admissions essay? Should there be point form content?

Any help is greatly appreciated!

You should just ask them. You're already admitted... they aren't going to kick you out! :-)

A document outlining your needs for two years vs. your abilities.

I would include a detailed budget for the time you will spend in school, and a statement of what portion of that would be covered by your savings, stipends, grants etc that you have secured. Then make a pitch on how much money you need to cover the rest.

Make sure you budget things like your health insurance, transport, travel, books, etc. If you have children/spouse - they get special treatment in your statement as they are usually viewed as an extra burden.
