About TRiO Educational Talent Search

TRiO Educational Talent Search, a part of Grand Valley State University's College of Education, identifies and assists underrepresented individuals who have the potential to succeed in higher education. The program provides academic, career, and financial counseling; tutoring and financial literacy referrals, and encourages their participants to graduate from high school and continue on to the post-secondary institution of their choice.

TRiO Talent Search also serves adults interested in returning to school by encouraging them to reenter the education system and complete their secondary education.

The ultimate goal of TRiO Talent Search is to increase the representation of youths from disadvantaged backgrounds in post-secondary educational institutions around the United States. With TRiO, students can make a difference in their lives, their communities, and in their education.
