DETAILS: Launched in 2019, the Regional College and Career Fair is a collaborative educational effort that connects nearly 90,000 students with college and university representatives from a variety of public and private institutions.

The event is part of Fontana Unified’s efforts to boost college and career readiness by removing barriers and increasing access to information and financial support. Such efforts include annual college application days where students receive assistance in submitting their applications, financial aid workshops that guide students and families through the process of applying for financial aid and completing FAFSA and CA Dream Act applications, and covering college application fees for students who do not qualify for fee waivers.

Coverage and/or inclusion of this event in your calendar of events is welcome and greatly appreciated.
