Last Year's Expo 2015

Black College Expo (BCE) hosted by the National College Resources Foundation (NCRF) on Saturday, February 28, 2015 at the JW Marriott Houston (Galleria) awarded $411, 000 in scholarships, accepted over 450 students into college and some 1900 students and parents were in attendance. College recruiters were excited with the level of talented students that visited their booths for that up-close and personal, one-on-one interaction with future scholars of their programs.  Students can now prepare to pack their bags to head off to colleges and universities of their choice in pursuit of a college education. Parents were thrilled to know that with the scholarships awarded and financial aid info given at the event, they have no worries about trying to find money for their teen’s education.  It is a win, win and win for everyone at this event.

The Houston Independent School District (HISD) had partnered with NCRF, which allowed HISD students and parents FREE admission. Students saved hundreds of dollars in application fees, which were being waived at the event.   To get accepted on the spot, all students needed to bring was their official transcript and SAT/ACT scores to be reviewed by college admissions recruiters.  In addition to getting their application fees waived and accepted on the spot, some colleges offered scholarships valued up to $180,000.

LA Expo

LAST YEAR'S 2015 Black College Expo was a success!

Students from the LA area attending the NCRFʼs Black College Expo (Los Angeles) will gain insight into educational resources, scholarship opportunities, financial aid benefits and college readiness. Students can talk to college counselors and financial aid representatives to get guidance on how to apply for these benefits to get into college and help pay for the expense of attending. Seniors are encouraged to bring their high school transcripts and SAT/ACT scores to be reviewed by college admissions recruiters for the possibility of them being accepted on the spot and given scholarship money to attend. Parents are encouraged to attend our FASFA seminar which will be equipped with 25 on-site computer stations to submit financial aid applications and get help on filling out the information.

LA area students will have an opportunity to attend seminars on hot careers, how to write effective essays to get into your dream college, and how to increase their SAT/ACT scores. Founder, Theresa Price who launched the NCRF College Expo sixteen years ago, says, “We are so excited to return to Los Angeles for our 16th year. Our goal is to help as many students as possible be able to go to college. To do this students, 11th and 12th grade can get accepted on the spot to a college, scholarships will be given away on the spot, and students and parents can fill out their free application for student financial aid form and get help right on site with experts. Also, what's great is there is a college for every kind of student. January 31th is truly a one stop shop to help all students.”

In keeping with the NCRF motto...“Connecting Students to College, Careers & Beyond,” college attendees will be able to meet representatives from corporations that are looking to expand diversity and introduce students to their specific companyʼs and career fields.
