Planning to! Getting more PI-specific recommendations is the tough part. Working on the general merit scholly application first.
I'm thinking about it, but some of the stipulations made me a little nervous, so I'm going to look into it a little more. Repayment if we don't graduate makes sense on paper, but there are a lot of reasons a person might not graduate (i.e., medical issues) that could create real hardship with a sudden influx of ~$200k debt.
Maybe this is a pretty normal scholarship stipulation though -- not sure.
