Dr. Theresa Price, founder of the National College Resources Foundation (NCRF), says, “ Since its inception, the organization has helped stunts secure over $500 million in scholarships and grants and has helped over 500,000 students (over 300,000 first generation students) get into college, through 130 College Expos produced by NCRF. Price founded the National College Resources Foundation (NCRF) a 501c3 non-profit organization in 1999 in a direct response to the passing of California’s proposition 209 that banned affirmation action programs in California colleges.
The College Expo is for all students, all backgrounds. Students get to meet one-on-one with over 200 colleges, Ivy League, private, public, independent, military colleges and community colleges.
Students receive on the spot scholarships, acceptance to colleges, application fees are waived, plus students can get help from experts filling out their financial aid forms. Students attend seminars on “Booming Careers”, “The 411 for the Student Athlete”, “How to Find Money for College”, and even Hip Hop artist YoYo teaches students “How to get A’s in English.
For 2019, Dr. Price has increased the expo to new markets while continuing to be consistent in annual markets. Exhibitors/vendors are being accepted. Please call 877-427-4100 or email [email protected]
