GREENSBORO, NC — Most things in life aren’t free, but this is! Next weekend, students and parents can learn about the best ways to get help paying for college for free!

You’re invited to a college scholarship and admission conference at North Carolina A&T State University on Saturday, February 6, 2016.

At the conference, parents and students will learn about scholarships and other forms of financial support for college tuition and fees. Students will participate in formal mock interviews and receive performance feedback.

It’s called the Onward and Upward toward the Light Scholarship and College Admission Conference. The conference is designed to address the various barriers that contribute to the low enrollment of minority students in four-year institutions.
