Historically Black Colleges and Universities Fair
Our annual HBCU Fair, in partnership with the New York Urban League Young Professionals, attracts over 3,000 New York City high school students, out-of-state high school students, and their parents. Located at the Riverbank State Park facility in Harlem, the event features more than 45 HBCUs, some of which provide on-site admissions and scholarship awards, and also includes interactive workshops on college admissions, applying for financial aid, preparing for the first year in college, and succeeding on standardized entry exams.
