Join the fight for full and fair funding
Many current and incoming doctoral students at the CUNY Graduate Center, as much as 50% of some new cohorts, receive no funding at all beyond five-year tuition waivers.
Students who only receive tuition waivers face out-sized obstacles to the completion of their programs, including scrambling to piece together a living, limited access to health care, exclusion from some fellowships, and being left to compete for a limited number of adjunct and GA positions – any of which may be revoked at the last minute.
We’re a working group organizing for full and fair funding packages for all doctoral students. Check out our Facebook page for info on our next meeting, or email us to get involved: firstname.lastname@example.org
Fall 2020: A group of our members have drafted a list of FAQs on the question of full and fair funding packages for all. See them here.
Fall 2018: We’ve officially launched our funding surveys, for first year PhD students and all other PhD students. By taking five minutes to tell us about your funding situation, you’ll help us develop a fuller picture of how money gets allocated at the GC and its effects on you.
April 2018: We drafted and passed a Resolution for Full and Fair Funding [PDF] at the Doctoral and Graduate Students’ Council plenary meeting
