I remember when I first started working on my thesis project. My adviser asked me to get some funding for it, but he didn't give me any advice about how to do that. He just told me that if I wanted money for my project, I'd have to go through some kind of committee process and submit an application for funding from them. Sure enough, after weeks of writing applications and waiting around for responses from the committee members (who were always too busy), I eventually got approved for funding!

Hey congrats, it's not always easy to advocate for ourselves and get what we want. Keep it up!

Congrats on getting funding for your thesis! I remember when I did mine, it was so hard but eventually I got it as well!

I kinda like your adviser. He/she is setting you up for success
