After their service many Peace Corps volunteers decide to pursue their passion and further their social impact through graduate level education. That's why NPCA is pleased to bring attention to the Idealist.org Graduate Fairs for Public Good. They're a wonderful way to meet with representatives from graduate programs, learn about different degrees, the application and financial aid process and ways to smooth the transition home.
The next Fair is happening in Washington, DC. Meet representatives from 61 local, national, and international public interest and social change graduate programs at the Idealist.org Washington, DC Graduate Degree Fair for the Public Good on Wednesday, June 17. It is free, open to the public
and runs from 5:00 to 8:00 pm.
At the fair you can:
- Talk with representatives from different degree programs such as social work, public administration, international affairs, education public policy, divinity, nonprofit management, environmental sciences, public health, law, business, and more.
