College Scholarship Fair
Tuesday, September 24, 9 AM -12PM
This event hosts representatives from colleges and universities who are prepared to talk with students about admissions and scholarship opportunities at their schools. Many students receive scholarship offers on the spot. A wide variety of schools participate, from large private and public universities to small, liberal-arts colleges. We are anticipating about 50 colleges again this year. The mission of the Infinite Scholars program is to provide financially-disadvantaged students with the financial means and guidance to further their education and pursue degrees at institutions of higher education. Over the past decade, the program has helped more than 100,000 students receive more than $1 Billion dollars in scholarships offers from participating colleges and universities. This year, Infinite Scholars will host 26 scholarship fairs in 24 cities. Students are asked to come prepared to talk about admission and scholarship opportunities with the college representatives. Students are asked to bring multiple copies of their unofficial high school transcript, test scores (ACT/SAT), two letters of recommendation, student resume, and an essay about why they want to attend college. Register HERE.
