About TRiO/ETS

Talent Search

Talent Search began in 1965 as one of the Federal TRiO programs.  Funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education, Talent Search identifies and assists individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds with the potential to succeed in higher education.  All participants are advised to enroll in the post-secondary institution of their choice.


The program is designed to motivate and support students by offering an array of educational opportunities.  The success of our students will impact not only their families, but the community as a whole.  Our goal is to impact the student and instill the confidence needed to succeed where ever their endeavors take them.
