Feria de Educación
The Fifth Annual Feria de Educación will be held on Sunday, October 1, 2017, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the University Union Ballroom on the Sacramento State campus. The Feria de Educación is hosted by Univision 19, the California State University Office of the Chancellor and Sacramento State. The objective of the fair is to provide Spanish-speaking families with the information necessary to navigate California’s education system from kindergarten through grade twelve and on to college and a career.
Information is presented in both English and Spanish, including workshops on financial aid, preparing for college and exploring career options. The California Student Aid Commission will be offering a financial aid workshop to assist students and parents with completing the 2018–19 Free Application for Federal Student Aid and California Dream Act Application. In addition, approximately 70 universities, community colleges, educational organizations and nonprofit groups participate in the event to provide information and resources to students and their families.
This free community event attracts audiences of several thousand people each year. There is a free book giveaway by the Mexican Consulate of Sacramento, a reading garden for children, as well as music and entertainment. This is a great opportunity to use site College Readiness Block grant funds (schools that received this grant).
