Our fairs are different. Unlike traditional college fairs that are informational, our fairs focus on scholarships and financial aid. Come prepared to talk with the college reps about their scholarship opportunities. Some colleges waive application fees at our fairs and some colleges will actually award scholarships on the spot!
Preparing for college is not just something for high school seniors. We encourage all high school students to attend our fairs. This will allow you to learn about what you need to do in order to receive the best scholarship offers. Make sure and sign up for our e-newsletter so that you will receive information and tips throughout the year.
