TRIO Talent Search (TS) is a TRIO program 100 percent federally funded by the United States Department of Education in the amount of a $438,253 per year grant. TS provides 800 eligible junior high students, high school students, and adults with services that will help them enroll in and graduate from an institution of higher learning. 

Our focus is to encourage and assist students to reach their academic and personal goals by helping them stay in school, enroll in a post-secondary school of their choice, or help them complete the high school equivalency diploma (formerly the GED).
