The Trump administration’s proposed budget, released last week, cuts the Department of Education budget by 13.5 percent and reads like a primer on how to destroy higher education and research. The budget cuts student-loan forgiveness, subsidized loans, the federal work study program, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, and the Fulbright program, to name a few targets.
Back in March, we opposed similar cuts proposed in the administration’s “skinny budget,” and we continue to stand strongly against the new budget proposal.
Sign on to an open letter opposing the cuts. We will deliver it to lawmakers on Capitol Hill on June 15, during our annual lobbying day.
