Attend a Grad Fair

Want to change the world? There’s a degree for that!

At an Idealist Grad Fair, you can:

  • Learn about admissions requirements and application deadlines for graduate programs in social work, public policy, nonprofit management, international affairs, public interest law, social entrepreneurship, and many more
  • Speak with graduate admissions advisors from local, national and international universities

Since 2004, the Idealist Grad Fairs have been helping prepare the next generation of nonprofit leaders by connecting thousands of prospective students with hundreds of admissions representatives from public-interest graduate programs across the United States and around the world. Fields represented at the fairs include public administration, international affairs, education, public policy, public interest law, social work, nonprofit management, global and public health, theology, environmental science, socially responsible business, and more.

The fairs are free and open to anyone interested in learning about grad school. Watch this short video to see why you should attend an Idealist Grad Fair.
