Who We Are
The Graduate and Professional Student Assembly (GAPSA) is the official student government body for graduate and professional students at Penn, representing over 13,000 students across twelve graduate schools.
What We Do: Advocacy
GAPSA members engage in an ongoing dialogue with the leaders of the University, sit on Board of Trustees and University Council meetings, and meet regularly with Penn’s President and Provost to advocate for student interests.
What We Do: Funding
GAPSA is responsible for funding graduate school governments, student groups, student-led initiatives, affinity groups, travel grants, research grants, and events. Applications for the GAPSA General Assembly Discretionary Fund are currently open.
