HBCU Fair Set for Jan. 24
The 12th Annual Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Fair will be held from 6-8 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 24, at the Universities at Shady Grove, Building III, 9640 Gudelsky Dr. in Rockville. On-site admissions will be held from 3:30–8 p.m.
This free event will provide students in grades 8-12 an opportunity to meet representatives from more than 60 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). The HBCU representatives will share information and answer questions from students and parents. The event will also feature a college preparation workshop for middle school students and parents, a panel discussion on college life, FAFSA completion assistance, scholarship information and more.
Several HBCU representatives will hold on-site interviews with 12th grade students. During the interviews, students can potentially receive application fee waivers, scholarship awards and on-site admission.
Online registration is required. Information about the fair and registration is located here.
The fair is sponsored by MCPS, the Montgomery County Branch of the NAACP and the Washington Inter-Alumni Council of the United Negro College Fund.
