Graduate Students Speaking Out on Sequestration: Join the Effort!

October 22, 2012

by Paula Skedsvold

The American Physical Society (APS Physics) is spearheading an effort to let U.S. House and Senate leaders know about graduate student concerns with automatic cuts to the federal budget scheduled to begin on Jan. 2, 2012. The cuts will have a devastating impact on federal science budgets and the future of the country’s next generation of scientists. The Federation of Associations in Behavioral & Brain Sciences (FABBS) has joined numerous other organizations to get graduate students to sign the Letter to Congress: Students’ Sequestration Concerns.  APS Physics is hoping to get 10,000 signatures before the November 13 deadline. A student from each state will personally deliver the letter to the district offices of Congressional members.  Sign the letter and get your colleagues to do the same!
