(New) Native American College Fair

The Native American College Fair was started in 2013 as a way to bring colleges, universities and training programs to Twin Cities Native youth and their families. We provide a setting that allows students to have meaningful conversation with representatives about college life, courses and admission & financial aid requirements.

Although we enjoy gathering with you each year in order to protect everyone’s health this year we will not be having an in-person event, instead we have created a website for Native Youth, their families and community members which features information and videos provided by colleges, universities and financial aid opportunities. The website also features videos created by a variety of Native professionals and college students, including a recorded panel of college students discussing their educational experiences. The website can be accessed at https://sites.google.com/view/2020nativeamericancollegefair beginning the morning of Friday, October 9, 2020 and will remain available at least through the end of October.
