On Friday April 2nd 2021, it was announced by President Daniels and Provost Kumar that the university will be directing $5 million towards aid for PhD students. This comes in the form of 100 travel and research grants at $5,000 – $12,000 a piece, and 200-300 dissertation completion awards that include some combination of stipend, tuition, and health insurance for a semester.

Though this is a  partial victory for the support we’ve been campaigning for over the last year, and ultimately is a result of all of your efforts, it falls far short of our demands. We need universal funding extensions now! Please read our official statement on Hopkins’ recent announcement here.
