What's New

 

The MPS College and Career Center 2017 Scholarship application is now closed.  Please visit the College and Career Center in your high school for more scholarship opportunities and help with the application process. 

 
 
The Fresh Coast Classic College and Resource Fair will take place at the University of WisconsinMilwaukee Student Union (2200 E. Kenwood Boulevard) on Thursday, November 16, 2017, from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

 

The Fresh Coast Classic College and Resource Fair gives high school students an opportunity to explore historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs) and other colleges around the country. Students also get a chance to attend breakout sessions throughout the day. Breakout session topics include (but are not limited to) information on how to obtain scholarship money, FAFSA completion, and NCAA athletic eligibility at the college level. Information is presented as well on apprenticeships, technical schools, and careers in the military.

The Fresh Coast Classic began in 2007 and since then has become more than just a basketball tournament. People travel from around the world to experience this classic. Running Rebels, a Milwaukee community organization, wanted to find a way to get youth interested in things other than what they would see going on daily in their neighborhoods and to provide access to college and career pathways. This event exposes Milwaukee-area students to many educational opportunities available at HBCUs as well as colleges in Wisconsin and surrounding states, and it promises to be a great, fun-filled, family weekend of events!

 

To find out more information please stop in the College and Career Center in your school or visit Fresh Coast Classic College and Resource Fair.
