PhD Program Fair

The PhD Program Fair gives APPAM Institutional Members the opportunity to talk about their program with Master’s students or professionals considering a PhD program.  It’s a great opportunity for programs to meet with interested students and for students who are considering a program to ask candid questions and get a sense of the depth and breadth of programs available to them. The PhD Fair will take place in person on Friday, November 18 from 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm. 

Space is limited so tables will be reserved on a first come, first served basis. The Fair is open to any policy PhD program that is interested in sharing details of their program with conference attendees. The request form must be completed by Friday, September 30.
