A virtual college access fair for Black and Latinx students and their families—“the only one of its kind in the State of New York”—will be held this Saturday, Nov. 21, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The fair is free and open to everyone.
“The virtual college fair will include the opportunity to connect with representatives from 50+ private colleges from across New York as well as workshops, offered in English and Spanish, on the college process and financial aid,” reads the online event posting. “Individual virtual appointments with financial aid experts will also be available in English and Spanish.”
Workshops include a Fordham-sponsored mentoring session for young men of color with University alumni and working professionals who are also men of color (and requires pre-registration) as well as sessions on how to pay and prep for college.
This year’s fair was sponsored by Bloomberg Philanthropies, the Commission on Independent Colleges and Universities, and Fordham. In years past, the fair has been held on Fordham’s campus.
