Sponsored by Comerica, Toyota, American Airlines, US Army ROTC, Honda, Wells Fargo, Nickelodeon, Dallas Mavericks, and Credera, the Dallas Black College Expo, hosted by the National College Resources Foundation (NCRF) will be an in-person 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. COVID-19 safety protocols are in place for the Black College Expo that follow CDC guidelines.
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 informative seminars and American Airlines will be conducting interviews on site for jobs and careers.“Our expos have helped increase college enrollment as high as 43 percent at some colleges, we are on a mission to change the world with positive future leaders, says Founder Dr. Theresa Price.
To support and connect with students in the Dallas area, NCRF has partnered with school districts to increase the “college going rate” among Dallas 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.
