Student Athlete Program

NCRF's S.A.P is committed to helping student athletes with their dreams of playing at the next level. Our mission is to provide student athletes with the necessary resources to ensure academic and athletic success.

Areas of focus:


STUDENT ATHLETES! It is important that you understand the "value" of being a STUDENT ATHLETE and not an Athlete Student. In today's times college coaches are looking for students who perform well in the classroom as well as on the field. For colleges to keep their athletic scholarships, they have to recruit athletes who can perform well in the classroom. As they are looking at you and thinking about recruiting you, no matter how good you are, the first thing out of their mouth is "how are his/her grades". They cannot give you an athletic scholarship if you don't meet the academic requirements. Plus, to have success after sports, you must be educated, so take advantage of your scholarship to get your DEGREE!

NCRF/The College Expo through its collaborative partners has placed over 600 student athletes with full scholarships in various colleges across the country. The Student Athlete Program is an outreach program developed by the NCR Foundation/The College Expo to transform athletic students into STUDENT ATHLETES.

HBCU Combine 2017

Student Athlete Program

National College Resources Foundation’s program Black College Expo™ held the 1st Annual Exclusive HBCU Football Combine and 7on7 showcase April 29th and April 30th at Lynwood High School. This 2-day event showcased 265 student athletes from all over California. 105 athletic scholarships were offered to students, totaling over $8 million in scholarships awarded. 

Saturday student athletes participated in combine testing which included bench press, vertical, 40, and the pro shuttle. After combine testing, athletes were addressed by HBCU football coaches who spoke about the history of Historically Black Colleges and promoted education as a priority for student athletes. Throughout the day athletes were being evaluated to receive an invitation to Sunday’s skills day. 

Sunday the invited athletes participated in position drills, 1on1’s, and a 7on7 for final evaluation from the college coaches. Some student athletes were offered scholarships on the spot based on their performance.

Kenny Washington Award

NCRF Sports Program in partnered with the Kenny Washington Legacy Foundation. Kenny Washington was passed over by the NFL, which had not had an African-American player since 1933. Instead, he became the biggest star and most popular player in two minor professional leagues on the West Coast. Finally, in 1946 the Los Angeles Rams signed him, ending the 12-year ban on black players in the NFL.
NCRF/The College Expo through its collaborative partners has placed over 600 student athletes with full scholarships in various colleges across the country. The Student Athlete Program is an outreach program developed by the NCR Foundation/The College Expo to transform athletic students into STUDENT ATHLETES.

This award is presented to the combine's most outstanding player on both the offensive and defensive side of the ball. These student athletes not only exemplified athletic excellence, but also displayed coachability & great work ethic.

NCRF began its service to underserved and underrepresented students in 1999 in response to California Proposition 209, which banned affirmative action policies in the state, 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 brought together representatives from historically Black colleges and universities around the country to provide admissions and scholarship information to the 35,000 students, parents, and other visitors in attendance. This day provided proof that one day is not enough, so NCRF Founder Dr. Theresa Price started visiting schools weekly encouraging higher education in the African American and Latino communities. When at a local East LA high school Dr. Price was approached by more than half of the students in the class, with various students sharing that their counselors said they “were not” college material.​

As a response to this cry, NCRF created "The Movement Enrichment Program".  The Movement is a program that goes into the schools to work with students from social-emotional concepts, which includes comprehensive intervention, mentoring, academic support, college readiness, and college and career planning. "The Movement" Program today works with over 25 elementary, middle and high schools, and 99% of the students have increased their grades, developed a better sense of self, and are thinking of plans for their future based on our intervention and mentoring concepts. Matter of fact, 100% of these students apply for college or a certificate program.

Although NCRF was derived out of an annual event, Black College Expo™, it was discovered through this event that there is truly a disconnect among the minority communities, especially African American and Latino, with resources and opportunities for students to succeed.  And as it is widening in achievement gap, workforce gap, and economic disparities, NCRF created programs to address these issues.  The Movement Enrichment Program has been working in schools since 2012, meeting with students in small groups and one-on-one dissecting problems, like homelessness, foster youth, gang pressure, environment issues, family issues, economic issues, and the like, by coaching and training students to feel good about oneself, understanding their value and existence, designing a plan for them to succeed.  This includes, but not limited to, anti-bullying, tutoring, mentoring, college readiness, college and career planning, job placement, job shadowing, internships, selecting a major, fields of study, selecting a college or program, and goal setting.  Another major program, Students Think STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Aerospace, Agriculture, and Math) was created in 2014 to increase the enrollment and awareness of the opportunities in the STEAM fields, while at the same time addressing the workforce shortage in STEM and future outcomes.  NCRF is creating pipelines for students to be engaged, receive resources and opportunities.  These pipelines extend beyond K-12 due to the necessity to work with post-secondary students (college students) to connect to resources and opportunities for them to continue college (retention) and graduate (matriculation). Our programs Black College Expo™, The Latino College Expo™, Students Think STEAM Expo- are all designed to bring in resources and opportunities for students of color, representing underserved, underrepresented, low resource, and at risk students.
