EVENTS

Aug. 9
2018 ORISE/ORNL Graduate Student Recruitment Fair
9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Oak Ridge National Laboratory
Oak Ridge, Tennessee
The 19th ORISE and ORNL graduate student recruitment fair will take place this August! Last year we had close to 500 of the nation’s top undergraduates in our research participant programs at ORNL, and we predict that number will grow this year. With undergraduates in a wide variety of fields ranging from physical sciences to engineering, you are sure to find a perfect fit for your institution’s graduate programs. The fair is held in conjunction with the conclusion of the ORNL summer undergraduate student programs to capitalize on this brimming talent pool. Over 200 students from across the country will present posters of their research at ORNL during an all-day session on Thursday, August 9, 2018. The Recruitment Fair will run the entire day from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., so students may come to all university tables during the day. We do hope you will attend or have others represent your institution to take advantage of this outstanding opportunity to attract top-flight students to your institution’s graduate programs.
