AIBS Joins Societies in Urging Federal Policymakers to Provide Support for Ukrainian Students, Researchers

AIBS has joined a coalition of scientific societies and organizations in condemning the invasion of Ukraine and urging policymakers to take quick action to support Ukrainian scientists.

“The scientific community of Ukraine is vibrant and contributes to the global advancement of knowledge and the progress of humanity,” note the groups. “Ukrainian scientists, engineers, students, educators and their families are experiencing a violent occupation of their nation. Their lives are endangered, and a humanitarian crisis with long-lasting effects is unfolding.”

The letter urges timely Executive and Congressional action on immigration rules and research programs to aid Ukrainian students and researchers and their families in fleeing the country and establishing themselves elsewhere. It lays out a number of specific steps that the Administration and Congress can take to support Ukraine’s research community.
