“I was on fire when visiting high schools to inspire students to attend college, I realized that many students were told they weren’t college material, so I said to myself what can I do about it”

Dr. Theresa Price, Founder/ Executive Director of National College Resources Foundation

Our History

A timeline of events.

1999

NCRF began its service to underserved and underrepresented students in 1999 in response to California Proposition 209, which banned affirmative action policies at state colleges, disrupting the already tenuous relationship between minorities and college admissions.  On February 26th of the following year, NCRF hosted the First Annual Black College Expo™ at the Los Angeles Convention Center, an event that highlights Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) and other postsecondary institutions to provide admissions and scholarship information to the 35,000 students, parents, and other visitors in attendance.
