TRIO Talent Search can help you achieve your goals

TRIO Talent Search is a federally-funded grant program that identifies and assists individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education. The program provides academic, career, and financial counseling to its participants and encourages them to graduate from high school and continue on to the postsecondary school of their choice.

TRIO Talent Search also serves high school dropouts by encouraging them to reenter the educational system and complete their education. The goal of TRIO Talent Search is to increase the number of youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who complete high school and enroll in the postsecondary education institution of their choice.
