GPSA recognizes the importance of all types of funding to graduate and professional students. While GPSA does not offer fellowships or assistantships, we continually lobby for this type of funding within the university and at the legislature. Please contact your department concerning the availability of assistantships. The following sites may also be useful in finding funding sources, both on campus and beyond.
