HBCU College Tour Available for High School Students

Montgomery County OIC hosts an annual Spring Break HBCU College Tour for high school students interested in pursuing higher education upon graduation. Each year over three to five days, this all-inclusive tour provides a window into life at selected historically black colleges and universities in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and/or Alabama. While attending the college tour, students stay overnight in various cities and our dedicated team of chaperones guide them through their college tour and selection process. Many students conclude our tour with scholarships and acceptance to the schools we attend.
