Graduate & Professional School Fair Exhibitor Page

Welcome!  The 2019 NIH Graduate & Professional School Fair will be held  on Wednesday, July 17, 2019 from 8:45 am to 2:45 pm on the Bethesda campus of the NIH.   

Registration for the 2019 NIH Graduate & Professional School Fair closed on April 30th.  It is no longer possible for us to accommodate additional institutions.

The fair provides an opportunity for you to meet and recruit up-and-coming young scientists taking part in the NIH Postbaccalaureate and Summer Internship Programs and college and university students from the Washington, DC area.  Many of our approximately 1300 summer interns and 1400 postbaccalaureate trainees will apply to graduate or professional school for fall 2020.  They are a diverse population, representing educational institutions across the United States.  They typically have completed extensive undergraduate coursework in the sciences and a variety of research and/or clinical experiences.  Our trainees are interested in pursuing PhD, MD, MPH, and DDS degrees or combinations thereof.  In recent years they have matriculated in programs in the biomedical sciences, engineering, chemistry, public health, psychology, pharmacy, medicine, nursing, and dentistry.

The 2019 NIH Graduate & Professional School Fair will integrate workshops on getting to graduate and/or professional school with the opportunity for you to meet and speak with our students.  Exhibit hours will be from 9:45 am to 1:45 pm. 

There is no charge to exhibit at the fair, but space is limited; response has been overwhelming the past four years.  You will probably be asked to share a table and may wish to coordinate with other offices on your campus to send a single "team" to this event.

We look forward to your participation at the fair.  If you have any questions, please contact Jackie Newell (301-451-4571).
