Save Graduate Education in the USA - Don't let the GOP tax grad student tuition waivers!
This petition had 1,395 supporters
Graduate school is currently only affordable to most students due to tuition waivers, where students are free from paying tuition costs in exchange for a teaching assistantship / research assistantship. The proposed GOP Tax Bill would treat these tuition waivers as taxable income, in effect taxing students who make $25K-$35K a year as if they made $80K. Pursuing a PhD would become next to impossible for all students who are not already independently wealthy. The consequences for American innovation and research advancement would be, to say the least, catastrophic.
