2019 Mayor’s Luncheon and HBCU College Fair - Rochester, NY | UNCF

2019 Mayor’s Luncheon and HBCU College Fair – Rochester, NY

Since 2015, UNCF New York and Mayor Lovely A. Warren have presented the Rochester Mayor’s Luncheon, paired with an HBCU (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) College Fair for students and their parents, to inform young people of the opportunities at these institutions.

The Rochester Mayor’s Luncheon and HBCU College Fair is held in two parts. Part 1 is workshops for student provide information, resources and opportunities that will help increase family knowledge and involvement in the college preparation process.

Later, the luncheon is held. Simultaneously, high school students meet with HBCU college representatives to learn about application processes, degree programs, extra-curricular activities and other campus offerings.

Between 1,000-1,500 juniors and seniors from Rochester City School District and charter schools attend. In 2018, 1,500 students and 13 HBCUs registered for the College Fair; 308 students were admitted on-site, while $2.5 million in scholarships were awarded.

We encourage parents and students to attend this event and get a start on a successful college experience!
