HBCU College Tour Available for High School Students

Montgomery County OIC hosts an annual Spring Break HBCU College Tour for high school students seeking higher education upon graduation. This 4-5 day tour provides an all-inclusive tour to historically black colleges and universities in Maryland, Delaware, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and 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.

Support Our Students

To ease the financial burden of attending the tour, we are seeking sponsorships to support our 2023 Spring Break HBCU College Tour. This year’s tour will take place from April 2nd - April 7th, 2023. We will visit over a dozen schools in Virginia, North Carolina, and Georgia with overnight stays at select hotels in select cities. Sponsorships will cover the cost of lodging, transportation, materials, and meals. Please download a sponsorship package for additional information.
