2016 Black College Expo: Houston
The Power Center
February 27, 2016
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.
