On October 13-15, 2017, over 300 McKnight Fellows and professors will meet in Tampa for our 33rd McKnight Annual Fellows Meeting and 21st Annual Graduate School Conference. We invite you and your school or business to participate as an exhibitor and recruiter at the Conference.

Founded in 1984, today the McKnight Doctoral Fellowship Program supports record numbers of African American and Hispanic students with innovative practices designed to help fully develop their talents and expertise. The Annual Fellows Meeting is just one in a series of conferences, year-round online workshops and an annual research and writing institute that inform, train, and connect our doctoral Fellows. Our continual efforts to evaluate and refine the support system contribute to the development of scholars who are among the brightest in the nation, highly motivated and prepared to meet the divergent needs of communities, academia, and industry.

At this year’s Meeting, we will feature a “Dialogue with Exhibitors” dinner on Saturday, October 14th. Here you will be able to meet and mingle with potential faculty members and industry experts from the Program’s current doctoral students, recent graduates, and established professionals. Other compelling benefits of this recruitment opportunity include:
  • Exhibition space available for the duration of the Conference.

  • Multiple networking opportunities, enhanced by:

    • entrée to all additional Conference events and plenary sessions and

    • receipt of a diskette containing curriculum vitae and resumes of select Fellows and graduates

  • Access to the Doctoral Fellowship Program directory, which includes more than 400 students and 500 graduates, from September through December 2017, if registered by September 1, 2017.
