Graduate School Opportunities Fair

July 19, 2019. 3:30 - 5:45 p.m.

How to make connections with talented students.

The University at Buffalo McNair Scholars Program invites graduate school recruiters to participate in the Graduate School Opportunities Fair at our annual Undergraduate Research Conference. Our conference is an opportunity for undergraduate students to partake in various professional development experiences as they prepare for a future involving doctoral study.

For a $250.00 tabling fee, you will receive:

  • A display table at the conference.
  • A description on your program/services in our conference book.
  • Contact information of prospective graduate students.
  • Refreshments.

With more than 500 participants last year alone, this event is an excellent opportunity to promote your institution and recruit talented prospective graduate students for your programs!

The event will run from 3:30 to 5:45 p.m. 

It is strongly recommend that recruiters "check-in" at the conference site no later than 3:00 p.m 

We request that graduate recruiters do not use the hotel room block designated for students.

Questions regarding the opportunity fair may be send to Althea Porter, 716-645-2732, aporter8@buffalo.edu or Heather Hagenbuch, 716-645-4728, hiwelser@buffalo.edu.
