We are a group of graduate students and faculty who work through the American Political Science Association to advance the interests of graduate students in political science.

Although graduate students make up a large portion of the political science community, their voices are not always represented in decision-making bodies, meaning that discipline-wide policies and priorities may not affect graduate students’ concerns. The APSA Committee on the Status of Graduate Students in the Profession was formed in 2016 to learn more about the varied experiences of political science graduate students, communicate with APSA leadership about graduate student issues, and develop resources to help graduate students navigate the discipline.
