We did it!

December 23, 2017

As the GOP tax plan headed to the conference committee, Yale Science Diplomats and friends mobilized to write op-eds and letters to the editor of their local hometown papers: 

Rick Crouse - Gainesville Sun

Anna Hagstrom - Utica Observer-Dispatch

Michael Bond - Hartford Courant

Sarah Smaga - Detroit Free Press

Thanks to pressure from activism across the country, the tax-exempt status of tuition waivers (and the student loan interest deduction) remained intact in the final bill! 

Big thanks to everyone who worked on op-ed’s and the Yale Office of Public Affairs and Communications and the Yale Office of Federal Relations for their guidance and support.
