About TRiO Educational Talent Search

TRiO Educational Talent Search, a part of Grand Valley State University's College of Education, is a program that assists low-income and first generation students to persist to the next grade level, graduate from high school, and enroll in the college of their choice after high school graduation. The program also assists:

  • Students looking to return to college and pursue a bachelor's degree
  • Students interested in completing a GED
  • Students interested in a Certificate of Completion

Preference, for entry in the program, is given to students at the low-income and first generation status as well as to students attending a target school. It is also possible for other students to be accepted on a case-by-case basis if there is room in the program.
