California Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education


2024 California Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education

Dear Students,

You are invited to join students from all over California at the 2024 California Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education, which will be held in-person, Saturday, October 19, 2024, at UC Riverside.

The CA Forum for Diversity in Graduate Education seeks to acquaint and connect students from underrepresented groups with the career and academic opportunities associated with advanced study in a wide range of disciplines. Students will have the opportunity to meet representatives of the nation's leading graduate schools offering Master's and Ph.D. degrees and to attend workshops and panel sessions. Registered students will have access to open houses from over 150 leading institutions nationwide throughout the fall.

Forum workshops will provide information about selecting the right graduate program; the graduate application process; financial aid opportunities; preparing for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and employment prospects. This forum will not benefit those interested in obtaining a medical, dental, pharmacology or law degree. 

We urge you to take advantage of this unique opportunity to explore graduate studies either at the master's or doctoral level.
