Welcome, and thank you for joining us as we Stand with Science!

We are a group of student scientists who originally came together at MIT in 2011 to raise our voice against sequestration. Our first major effort was to send a letter to Congress in 2012 with more than 12,000 signatures gathered from graduate students and research funding supporters concerned about the future of federal funding for science.

We are not done as threats to science funding still loom, and we have expanded since 2012 to create the National Science Policy Group, which includes representatives from across the country. Do you want to get involved to save federal science funding? Don’t wait! Click the link above to join our current action, and reach out to us on twitter at @StandWithSci
