On October 19, 2018, two resolutions were adopted during Doctoral and Graduate Students’ Council Plenary meeting. “Resolution on Late Fellowship Stipend Checks for International Students” expressed the deepest concerns and frustration of international students of the Graduate Center CUNY who were not provided their stipends in a timely manner due to technical issues. The resolution was unanimously adopted. With it, we call upon administrators of the Graduate Center to recognize that this places many students in a financially ruinous position, particularly as international students are unable to work outside of the college and university.

The full draft of the resolution is available on the website here.
