Asking for a stipend

How would you guys phrase requesting a living stipend from a law school that has offered you a full tuition scholarship?

First, I'd check their ABA 509s and make sure it's even something they do. If so, just like with any scholarship negotiation, you need to ask very politely.

Good point, I checked their 509 and they had some students above the total cost of tuition. Thanks for that advice.

Just awkward I guess

You probably need to have a full scholarship offer from a peer school as leverage (or at least a competitive offer from a much better school), too.
