Why come to a Grad Fair?

Whether you know precisely what kind of degree you want or you’re just beginning to explore options, our events allow you to meet with lots of admissions counselors in one place; ask them what makes for a successful application; and even attend a free panel about graduate admissions and financial aid.

Why come to an Idealist Grad Fair?

Our fairs are designed specifically for people who want to further their social impact careers. Admissions folks have consistently told us that they get their best applicants at Idealist Grad Fairs, because members of our community really want to go on to create social change after they graduate.

At each event, you can learn about programs focusing on nonprofit management, public health, public policy, social work, education, international affairs, and many other fields.

How to sign up

The fairs are free and open to the public. Visit and click on your city to RSVP.

See you soon!
