I am looking for a master’s position. I emailed a professor and we arranged a meeting on Skype, where he said that he would assess my knowledge and he told me that he will tell me the result afterward.(whether apply or not) Now I think he likes to have me as a student.I performed well and he forwarded my email to his Ph.D. students and he said to them. she likes to work in this field.
how can I ask the professor about the possibility of applying and funding? I'm not a native speaker I have an anxiety about being rude. I have admitted some europian universities but I like to go this particular university and I need to decide and know about the future because I admitted fall 2017(Europe). but this particular university starts in winter 2018. so I need to decide earlier. If I can't decide earlier I will miss the European universities, which is so undesirable.... could you please give me a piece of advice and/or a template of a letter? how can I ask about funding and possibility of applying politely?
Thank you in advance!
