"It has helped me determine what sort of program suits my interests and background best, as well as what I need to be doing for the rest of my Graduate School search." (2010 Attendee)

The Big Ten+ Grad School Expo is your one-stop shop for information about graduate study in:
  • Engineering
  • Science
  • Mathematics
  • Technology
  • Related Disciplines
At the graduate school fair, you'll have the opportunity to talk to faculty, graduate students, and staff from some of the nation's premier institutions. But, the Expo is more than just a grad fair. You will also have opportunities to:
  • Participate in workshops
  • Network with representatives from top-ranked universities
  • Receive advice from the National Science Foundation and other experts on funding your graduate education.
Come learn why you should consider an advanced degree, how to fund your graduate education, where you should study, and more.

The Big Ten+ Graduate School Exposition on Sunday and Monday September 25-26, 2011 is for you!

Concerned about the cost to attend? Apply for a travel scholarship when you submit your registration.

Please note: If you are interested in pursuing a graduate degree such as the Master's or PhD, then the Big Ten+ Grad Expo is for you! This event may be less relevant for students interested in professional degrees such as the DVM, PharmD, JD, MD, etc.

Registration and Fees: If you register online before Monday, September 19, 2011, the cost to participate in the Expo is $35, which includes a Welcome Dinner on Sunday evening, and breakfast, lunch, and admission to all activities on Monday, including workshops and the graduate school fair. If you do not register online, you are still welcome to attend the Grad Expo; however, please note that registration at the door on the day of the event is $40. If you apply for a travel scholarship, but do not receive an award, and therefore, are unable to attend the Grad Expo, your registration fee will be refunded to you, provided you request a refund prior to the event.
