All graduate students at George Mason University are represented by GAPSA and are eligible to vote in GAPSA elections. There are, however, two types of graduate students in GAPSA.
Graduate students who volunteer their time to help with GAPSA events or committees are considered active members. The primary benefit of active membership, beside helping your community, is the opportunity to receive an extra $50 when you apply for the Graduate Student Travel Fund, which supports travel to conferences for presentations.
Students who are represented by GAPSA but do not participate in events or committees are ineligible for the extra $50.
All graduate students know about the busy schedule that comes with higher education. When we find time to get involved, however, we can make a difference for our colleagues and for future students.
For more information about getting involved with GAPSA events, contact your campus GAPSA executive committee representative.
