Eleven doctoral candidates lobby on Capitol Hill

Eleven doctoral candidates traveled from the Ithaca campus and Weill Cornell Graduate School of Medicine in New York City to Capitol Hill for the annual Cornell Ph.D. Student Advocacy Day on March 29.

Students engaged in more than 20 meetings with members of Congress and their staffs to discuss how federal funding impacted their ability to access graduate education and advance their doctoral research. Cornell graduate students also joined peers from Stony Brook University, University at Buffalo and Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory for joint meetings with staff members from Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer’s offices.
