(Black PR Wire) Diamond Bar, CA – The 5th Annual Dallas Black College Expo™ is a Live event hosted by National College Resources Foundation (NCRF) on Saturday, October 15, 2022, from 10 am to 4 pm at Paul Quinn College, 3837 Simpson Stuart Rd., Dallas, TX 75241. This expo is an in-person experience where students gain access to 50+ colleges, highlighting historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and other educational institutions.
“We are so excited to be live in Dallas. The pandemic has created a whole new wave of mental health issues, which has affected graduation rates, college persistence and retention. The expo really brings positivity vibes to the community and resources to help underserved students and communities thrive. We want our students in Dallas and surrounding areas to know they matter and the expo does just that”, says NCRF Founder/CEO, Dr. Theresa Price.
The Dallas Black College Expo™ is an opportunity for students to be accepted on the spot, have their college application fees waived, and receive scholarships. This event offers a direct pathway for high school juniors, seniors, and community college students looking to transfer to a four-year college.
In addition to getting connected to college recruiters, students will also have access to NCRF’s African Americans in Aviation Traveling Museum historic exhibit, informative seminars and workshops which include but are not limited to How to Find Money for College, Why Attend an HBCU, 411 for the Student Athlete, and How to Start a Business. NCRF is honored to have Miss Black Texas USA 2023, Aryana Bosh, currently in a Doctoral program in Occupational Therapy, participating in Expo.
NCRF has partnered with American Airlines who will be interviewing students for internships and career opportunities. NCRF is also grateful for the support of US Army, Comerica, Toyota, and the Dallas Mavericks.
