College and Career Center → HBCU Fair
The 13th Annual HBCU College Fair and various workshops will take place on Saturday February 13th from 10:00 am–1:00 pm. On-the-spot admission and scholarship interviews for 12th grade students begin at 9:00 am on Friday, February 12th.
This free event provides students in Grades 8–12 an opportunity to meet representatives from more than 60 HBCUs. Representatives will share information and answer questions from students and parents about admissions, financial aid, testing, majors and much more. More than 1,000 students and parents from Montgomery County, Maryland, are expected to attend. All local area students in grades 8–12 and their parents are encouraged to participate. The event will also feature a college preparation workshop for middle school students and parents, a discussion on college life, FAFSA completion assistance, scholarship information and more.
Many 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. Learn how to prepare for common interview questions and what questions you should ask the HBCU representatives to help maximize your chances of acceptance.
All students and parents/guardians must register to attend.
