Graduate Diversity Assistantship Pathways Program (GDAPP)


The Graduate Diversity Assistantship Pathways Program (GDAPP) intends to increase access and opportunities to graduate education for domestic students from underrepresented groups and increase diversity in our graduate programs. GDAPP assistantships are funded through a partnership between the WSU Graduate School and the student’s program. In addition to funding, recipients become part of the GDAPP Scholar community. GDAPP retention and professional development programming and services are provided by the Graduate School.
