We are pleased to announce the 2021 Graduate School Fair will return in-person to The University of Texas at Austin campus on Tuesday, October 12 from 10 AM-2 PM. This annual event helps connect recruiters from graduate schools from around the world with the best and brightest students. The event will take place in front of Gregory Gym under a large tent, with additional tables along Speedway Plaza. Past events have had more than 120 graduate schools represented. Past exhibitors and those who have requested to receive future event communications will be notified via email. If you would like to be included on these announcements, please email
