Graduate School Fairs offer Exciting Opportunities

Harvard University

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

One of the more visible fairs targeted to prospective grad students is produced by Idealist, a nonprofit organization with the mission of connecting people, organizations and resources.

Idealist Grad Fairs are designed to 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 October 1, and will feature about 249 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, the University of Chicago School of Social Service Administration, and the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Health.   

The Baltimore event will take place in the Glass Pavilion at Johns Hopkins University on September 30, and will include representatives from American University, Carnegie Mellon University, Columbia University Teacher's College, Cornell Institute for Public Policy, Duke University, 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.
