The Graduate and Professional Student Federation (GPSF) is a representative advocacy organization dedicated to serving all graduate and professional students at UNC-CH. We advocate for improved campus and community resources to campus administrators and state and federal legislatures. We collaborate with the university administration, faculty, staff, and undergraduate students to create policies that respond to the particular needs and interests of all graduate and professional students. We connect graduate and professional students both socially and intellectually across disciplines.

franklinnight copyThe updated GPSF Resource Guide has the answers to many questions you’ll have as a student living in Chapel Hill or Carrboro, including (but not limited to): How do I find housing? How does public transit work? How can I find out more about my healthcare package as an RA/TA? Where can my family attend religious services? Does anyone around here play sports?

Do you have a resource to add? Visit the GPSF Forum and let us know!



GPSF offers funding in the form of appropriations to cover costs of academic and social events, awards to help pay for research-related travel, and mentorship awards. We also help students find potential funding sources all around campus. See the following quick links for funding info and applications, or click the image to the left for a full guide:
