About the Event
The New York Urban League, NYUL, will host its 34th Annual Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) Fair on Saturday, November 14, 2020, from 11:00 AM – 3:30 PM. This fair is presented in partnership with the Malcolm Bernard HBCU College Fair Tour and the New York Urban League Young Professionals with sponsorship from UPS.
This year’s Fair will be presented virtually for the first time, using the GoToCollegeFairs.com platform. Students will have access to over 50 HBCU admissions representatives, alumni, and staff, along with college and scholarship resources. In addition, there will also be workshops and guest speakers with a focus on helping students gain the knowledge and tools to navigate the higher education process.
The day will include interactive workshops on college admissions, applying for financial aid, researching scholarships, finding the right college, preparing for the first year in college, as well as meeting with HBCU representatives, some of which will provide on-site admissions, fee waivers, and scholarship awards. To date, 1,513 students have been admitted on-site, 2,358 fees waived, more than $2,534,000 awarded to 489 students. Last year, more than 5,000 students participated in the 2019 Fair, with a record number of acceptances and scholarships awarded.
