On Campus

We access the administrators; your voices get heard. We advocate for you on issues of housingparking, campus budgeting, and the various student services services on campus.

Social Events

We want to bring you out of your labs, offices, and libraries! In addition to hosting an ever-increasing variety of fabulous events, we fund graduate-student-initiated events and projects!


Currently, we draw some independent income as the primary stakeholder in UCI’s Anthill Pub & Grill, a landmark cultural institution at UCI. We are also open to your on-campus business ideas!

Off Campus

We are deeply involved with lobbying state and national legislatures. Though we advocate on other issues, we are primarily fighting the state of California’s divestment from public higher education.

AGS Symposium

The 2017 AGS Graduate Research Symposium will take place on Friday, April 21st. UCI students will showcase outstanding graduate and professional research in non-technical talks and compete for cash prizes. Check out the symposium website for more information, and stay tuned for updates on applications!

Travel Grants

In 2013, AGS raised $70,000 of new funding to send graduate students to academic conferences. If you are a graduate student at UCI, you are eligible. Applications are now open. Check out the travel grant website for more details!

You can Join AGS!
