Black College Expo is live with over $10 million available in scholarships

(Black PR Wire) Houston Black College Expo™ is back and in-person Saturday, October 30, 2021, from 10 am to 4 pm. The event hosted by National College Resources Foundation (NCRF) was forced to be virtual last year due to the pandemic. This year will be a LIVE experience where students gain access to 40+ colleges, highlighting historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and other educational institutions with colleges giving away over 10 million in scholarships.

To support and connect with students in the Houston area, NCRF has partnered with the Houston Independent School District (HISD) to increase the “college going rate” among Houston area teens. According to Georgetown Recovery Report, there are over 55 million jobs available, but our current educational system is not producing enough talent to fill the current jobs. “Our expos have helped increase college enrollment as high as 43% at some colleges, we are on a mission to change the world with positive future leaders, says Founder Dr. Theresa Price.

The expo allows students to get accepted on the spot, get their college application fees waived and receive scholarships. This event will help high school juniors, seniors and community college students looking to transfer to a four-year college. Parents are encouraged to bring students as young as 6th grade to start their college planning. Students will have access to the African Americans in Aviation Traveling Museum exhibit, informative seminars and American Airlines will be conducting interviews on site for jobs and careers.
