Graduate Student Groups

The GSA is here to enhance the experience of all grad students, and one of the ways in which we do this is by encouraging engagement by facilitating Graduate Student Groups (GSGs). We encourage you to start your own group based on research, cultural, or special interests.

Register your Graduate Student Group with the GSA

By registering your Graduate Student Group with the GSA, you are eligible to receive Start-up Grant and Event Grants. Please review the GSG Handbook and Policy. If you have any questions, please contact the Governance & Services Coordinator at

Events: You are encouraged to review the current University of Calgary guidelines and processes for hosting in-person events HERE
