The 6th Annual Latino College Fair will be held on Saturday, November 23, 2013, in both English and Spanish. On that day a free “Planning and Paying for College Workshop” and Latino College Fair will be held at Fordham University, Rose Hill Campus in Bronx, New York. The event will feature an afternoon full of college information important to the Hispanic community and more, including:

• a “Planning and Paying for College” workshop with a panel of financial aid experts;

• a College Fair with 50+ private (not-for-profit) colleges and universities in New York with undergraduate and graduate programs;

• “Ask the Financial Aid Experts,” available during the Fair

The “Planning and Paying for College” workshop will help your students and their families understand the financial aid process and programs. It will cover college affordability, explanations of grants and scholarships, plus financial aid forms, terms and deadlines. There will be a number of college financial aid professionals available to answer questions during a panel session following the presentation. There will be a $500 scholarship drawing to a high school senior. Spanish translation will be provided during the workshop (headsets) and Spanish-speaking financial aid experts will be available at the Fair for individual meetings.

The College Fair will allow students to speak with college admission representatives from a wide variety of independent (private, not-for-profit) colleges and universities in the state that represent both undergraduate and graduate programs.

We hope you will notify students and their parents about this important opportunity to have their questions about financial aid and admissions answered and meet with college representatives. All are welcome to attend.

Additional information may be viewed on the registration page (optional, but helpful for our planning): A current list of colleges and universities participating at the College Fair is listed on the registration page and will be updated as they confirmed.
