The Cooperstown Graduate Association (or CGA) is a not-for-profit corporation comprised of alumni and friends of the Cooperstown Graduate Program. CGA's primary purpose is to support CGP students as they enter the museum field. They do so by funding scholarships, field trips to museums and cultural institutions, and opportunities for professional development. Additionally, CGA helps CGP alumni stay in touch after graduation by hosting events in Cooperstown and at regional and national events, including many annual museum conferences.
