We are on the road again in Montana for the 2015 Montana Tribal College Career Fair Circuit on Feb. 2-10. Montana has the most Tribal College and Universities (TCUs) and TCU students than any other state and we are excited to join this event for the fifth year. The TCUs provide affordable, accessible higher education for college courses, career training, and more for students living near or on the reservations these tribal institutions serve.
The College Fund attends career fairs to recruit students to get a higher education and let them know there is financial assistance available. For this circuit we will join in with colleges, universities, military branches, agencies, and many career options and a chance to win scholarships and prizes!
The Montana Post Secondary Educational Opportunities Council (MPSEOC) and the Montana Tribal Colleges will host six events in Montana starting February 2, 2015 (see schedule here). It is the goal of MPSEOC 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!
Please com by and visit our booth to learn more about the opportunities available by our student success services department.
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. See you next week in Montana!
