Graduate School Fair at the March and April Meetings

Each year at the March Meeting, APS hosts a graduate school fair as part of Future of Physics Days (FPD) events for undergraduate students. The graduate school fair is co-located with the undergraduate student lounge—a relaxing space for students to take a break during the meeting and an excellent opportunity for undergrads to learn about graduate programs. This year, there will be a grad school reception at the APS April Meeting following the Lunch with the Grads Panel.
