Graduate School Fair
Graduate schools with plasma physics programs will staff virtual booths featuring the research being done at each institution. Participants are invited to "stop by" the booths and interact with the scientists, professors, admissions staff, and graduate students at each booth. You can find a slide deck with research summaries of many of the plasma physics/engineering institutions here

Graduate Opportunities Panel
Students applying to graduate school seldom know about all of the fellowship opportunities available for them. Fellowships help cover tuition, sometimes provide extra stipends, give you more research and academic freedom when entering grad school, give you proposal writing experience, and, in general, look good on a CV.
The Graduate Opportunities Panel features program managers and recipients of fellowships and awards available for graduate students in plasma sciences from the National Science Foundation (plasma physics at NSF can be found both in the Mathematical & Physical Sciences
and the Atmospheric and Geospace Sciences
divisions), Department of Energy Office of Science, Fulbright program, National Defense Science and Engineering Graduate Fellowship, NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowships, Department of Energy National Nuclear Security Administration, GEM Fellowship, etc.

To close off the Graduate School Day, graduate students from different plasma physics and fusion programs will lead breakout rooms that participants are invited to attend. This will be a chance to meet future colleagues and ask them about the application process, the grad school experience, different fields of plasma and fusion, different institutions, etc.
