GSC Support and Funding Opportunities


The GSAS Student Council (GSC) Supports, Advocates for, and Recognizes students at GSAS. Our support includes providing social programming and events, financial support, and professional development opportunities to our students. As part of this mission, we provide financial support for recognized GSAS graduate student organizations, grants for students for conference attendance and summer research, and small stipends for teaching January@ GSAS Mini-Courses.

Graduate Student Groups (GSGs)
Graduate Student Groups (GSGs) unite GSAS students by organizing and administering programming on general topics of interest that include, for example, cultural, sports-related, advocacy-oriented, or interdisciplinary endeavors. GSGs are NOT affiliated with a Harvard University department, division, or program. Leadership of these groups are all GSAS students and majority membership in GSGs are
