Graduate and Professional Student Congress

Apply for travel funding!

The Graduate and Professional Student Congress is excited to offer funding for students travelling to present their own original work. We believe that when our Graduate students present some of the incredible research done here at the University of Arkansas, they raise the profile of the University, which not only benefits them, but also their fellow students.

Service opportunties

One of the most important methods of having our voices heard is to ensure graduate and professional students participate as much as possible in service opportunities around campus. Nearly every function within the University of Arkansas is managed in conjunction with or solely by a committee. Graduate representation is needed on almost of all them. Click here for a list of opportunities and to let us know of your interest!

Beginning in Fall 2018, the University of Arkansas’ Graduate-Professional Student Congress (GPSC) proudly began a new chapter. Thanks to the unyielding work of a group of graduate students over the past several years, graduate and professional students on campus achieved complete independence for their governing body. The newly established GPSC now controls the student activity fee that each student pays each semester which provides a host of benefits for their constituents including over $40,000 of funding for graduate students to use for travel and research expenses. The GPSC is also now more than ever equipped to advocate on behalf of graduate and professional students to the administration on the unique issues that impact their lives and their work.

Graduate education is the backbone of all institutions of higher education and their voice will be louder than at any time in the history of the University of Arkansas.
