Admissions at Harvard Kennedy School

Recruitment Calendar

Recruitment Events

Representatives of HKS travel throughout the year to meet with prospective applicants. Details on where we have been and where we are going this year are below. We are always planning new sessions so please check back frequently for updates. We also host virtual information sessions as well.

Our students often volunteer to host sessions during their travels related to professional development. These sessions are usually small, casual gatherings at public places like coffee shops and current students share about their HKS experience. HKS students are not experts in the admissions process and questions pertaining to admissions matters can be sent to our office - admissions@hks.harvard.edu.
