Yale students: email Sarah if you’re interested in writing - she can connect you with resources!

Grad students around the country are writing their hometown papers to share how the tax bill will hurt higher education! For help writing op-eds see the Op Ed Project’s excellent resources page. When you publish, let us know and we’ll tweet it out! Help us keep track of op-eds that are published/submitted/in progress here!


Tell us what graduate education means to you. Join the #GradTaxRally photo campaign!

Use these statistics to tell your Senator how many graduate students in their state will be affected by the tuition tax.
