From 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. The Scottsdale Center for Performing Arts will be overflowing with students, parents and representatives from 98 colleges across the country and around the world, sharing information and making sense of the college process.

The Scottsdale College Fair Foundation organizes the corporately sponsored college fair and donates all proceeds to our scholarship fund. Over the past four years they have successfully donated over $30,000 to local students in need.
