College Fairs showcase Graduate School

Original home of Harvard's Kennedy School of Government

College fairs aren’t just for high school students anymore.  As increasing numbers of undergrads are considering postgraduate programs, new graduate school fairs are springing up across the country.

One of the more visible fairs is being produced by Idealist, a nonprofit organization with the stated mission of connecting people, organizations and resources.

Idealist Grad Fairs connect prospective students with graduate schools in fields such as public administration, international affairs, education, public policy, public interest law, social work, nonprofit management, global and public health, theology, environmental science, and socially responsible business.

Locally, fairs are being organized in Baltimore and Washington, DC.

The DC fair is being hosted by the George Washington University Graduate School of Education and Human Development at the Washington Convention Center on September 28th and will feature about 250 graduate school programs including the Johns Hopkins School of Nursing, the Harvard Kennedy School, Stanford Graduate School of Education, the UCLA Field School of Public Health, and the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Health.   

The Baltimore event will take place in the Glass Pavilion at Johns Hopkins University on September 27th and will include representatives from the Boston University School of Social Work, Columbia University Teacher's College, and the Yale School of Public Health.  Both are free and open to the public.

For more information or to RSVP either event, visit the Idealist website.
