Grad School Recruiter Information


The 2020 
UNM McNair Scholars Research Conference will be hosting its own graduate school fair this fall and we hope you will join us!  

  • In previous years we held our conference on the same dates that UNM Career Services held its Graduate and Professional School Fair.  Due to scheduling difficulties beyond either of our offices' control, we will have separate graduate school fairs on different dates
  • Our graduate school fair will be on Tuesday, September 1, 2020 in the Student Union Building.
    • Although the graduate school fair is on Tuesday, September 1, all registered recruiters are invited to attend the entire conference from Aug. 30 - Sept. 1, 2020. This includes an excursion to the spectacular Sandia Peak Tramway and dinner in an authentic New Mexico setting (Aug. 31).

    • A limited number of recruiters registered for our research conference have the opportunity to put on a presentation/workshop with McNair Scholars in attendance on Aug. 31.  If you wish to present you will need to submit a presentation description. Call 505-277-5491 or email mcnair@unm.edu if you have questions.

       Additional Information about our conference and graduate school fair:

  • All students registered for the McNair Research Conference will participate in the graduate/professional school fair on Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2020.
  • We have averaged approximately 240 registered participants from all over the country the past two years.
