Educational Talent Search
What is TRIO Talent Search?
TRIO Talent Search, established in 1965, is a free outreach program hosted by Emporia State University and funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Talent Search is one of a group of several federally funded TRIO programs that promote educational opportunities. Through early intervention, the program is designed to encourage participants to remain in school and to pursue post-secondary education.
