Social impact professionals at all stages in their careers get a chance to meet representatives from a range of public-service focused grad schools next week in DC and New York. The events are free, after work, and include information sessions.
Idealist’s 2009 season of Graduate Degree Fairs for the Public Good launches next week in Washington, DC, and New York.
These events are unique among graduate admissions fairs in that they are completely geared toward degree areas that our Idealist network is looking for—ranging from nonprofit and business management to public policy and social work. Education, divinity, public health, and environmental studies, public interest law, and other degrees are also represented.
Unlike most other grad fairs on college campuses, these are free and open to the public. More details about each event, below. Also check out this video, taped at last summer’s grad fair in New York City:
