Tribal Colleges Host College/Career Fairs
The Montana Post Secondary Educational Opportunities Council (MPSEOC) and the Montana Tribal Colleges will host 6 events in Montana starting February 7, 2017 (the three local events are listed below). We are very excited to offer this Tribal College/Career Fair Circuit for the eighth year in Montana! It is our goal to serve hundreds of college students, high school students, nontraditional students, families, guidance counselors, and community members with this event. Everyone is invited to attend for free!
The college fairs give students an opportunity to contemplate their higher education and career options. Students can visit with representatives from in-state and out-of-state colleges and universities, technical and trade schools, military branches, agencies, and career representatives.
Although the fairs are geared to college students and high school students, they are open to the general public and parents are encouraged to attend as well! Anyone who is interested in pursuing post-secondary education and career research is welcome to attend.
Another highlight of the college fairs is the Scholarship Program and Door Prizes. Each fair will have $500 in scholarship money to be given away and many great door prizes for those attendees of each fair. The scholarships and prizes are awarded by a random drawing from the names of people who attend these Tribal College Fairs. Therefore, by just attending a fair, students can walk away with money to put toward their education.
