Grad School Recruiter Information


The 2019 
UNM McNair Scholars Research Conference and the UNM Career Services’ Graduate and Professional School Fair are two separate events organized by different programs that cooperate with each other.  Because these two events are held at the same time and location it makes for an excellent opportunity for graduate school recruiters. Please read the information below to learn how you can participate in these two events:

  • The 2019 UNM McNair Scholars Research Conference is organized by the UNM McNair & Research Opportunity Programs. This event is on October 3 & 4, 2019 in the Student Union Building at UNM. Only paid registrants may attend all research conference events. There will be McNair Scholars from across the country in attendance.
  • The Graduate & Professional School fair is organized by UNM’s Career Services and is free for all UNM students. This event is on Thursday, October 3, 2019 in the Student Union Building at UNM.
  • We hope you will attend both of these great events; keep in mind that you MUST register for each event separately!
    • Some recruiters register for both events and others choose just one based on their needs or budget.
