Graduate Recruitment Weekend

The Chemistry Department at Duke University engages in multiple recruitment activities each year. Faculty and current graduate students travel to various universities, institutions, and conferences each year to promote our inter-disciplinary doctoral program both to peers and to potential applicants. The Graduate Studies Office engages in nationwide recruitment efforts by attending diversity forums and graduate fairs across the country. Each Spring the Chemistry Department invites select individuals offered admission to the doctoral program to visit Duke University and the department.

Individual visits can be scheduled any time of the year through the Graduate Studies Office or occur during the Department's Graduated Recruitment Weekend.
