Native American College Fair

College Fair

We are excited to announce that the 2022 Native American College Fair will be taking place in-person on October 14, 2022. The location is still being determined, it will be in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area of Minnesota. The Native American College Fair will also be offering a website again this year, the website will be launched October 10, 2022 so that youth may review the information prior to attending our in-person event.

Each school, pre-college program and financial aid opportunity that will be participating in the 2022 Native American College Fair offers Native American specific supports. The website will include individual pages for each school, pre-college program and financial aid opportunity, and schools are able to have additional pages for departments and programs. 

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, in 2020 we expanded to offer information to Native youth throughout the United States. Our in-person college fair provides a setting that allows students to have meaningful conversation with representatives about college life, courses and admission & financial aid requirements. The 2022 Native American College Fair will have an Arts & Entertainment theme, this information will be highlighted on the website and we plan to invite Arts & Entertainment professionals to participate in a speaker panel. 

You can view the 2021 Native American College Fair website (https://sites.google.com/view/2021nativeamericancollegefair) through the end of June. We will be reaching out to you again at the end of August to remind you about the 2022 Native American College Fair, and will be sending details on September 23, 2022.

We encourage you to follow us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or LinkedIn) or check our main website (https://sites.google.com/view/nativeamericancollegefair/home) in order to receive updates and additional information regarding the 2022 Native American College Fair. We can be contacted at nativeamericancollegefair@gmail.com.

We look forward to having you participate in the 10th Annual Native American College Fair.
