“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
"I realized the true power of education when I began working with NCRF in 2004, I have committed my life to empowering our future leaders!" - Veronica Kumberfeldt

Our History

A timeline of events.


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™, an event that highlights Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU’s) and other postsecondary institutions to provide admissions and scholarship information to students, parents, and other visitors in attendance.
