Scholarship Fair

Scholarship Sharing Non-Profit Scholarship & College Fair helps students to learn about local and national nonprofit and community organization scholarships opportunities to pay for college. It also helps students to network with participating college’s admissions and financial aid representatives to gain insights on enrollment, scholarship, and financial aid opportunities at their institutions.

Nonprofits with scholarship programs will distribute brochures with information on their scholarship requirements, and when applications open and close each year.

College representatives will speak to student attendees about financial aid and scholarship opportunities at their schools, as well as enrollment requirements for their institutions. Several colleges will conduct on-site admissions and waive fees.

50 nonprofits and 50 colleges exhibiting!
