Educational Talent Search
What is Educational Talent Search?
Educational Talent Search, established in 1965, is a free outreach program sponsored locally by Emporia State University since 2006 and funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. Through early intervention, this program is designed to encourage participants to remain in school and to pursue post-secondary education. Talent Search works with 6th-12th grade students in the Emporia area. Adults who have the desire to continue their education are also welcome.
Who is eligible?
- Students in grades 6-12th.
