The TRiO Scholars Program is a federally funded Student Support Services (SSS) program operating on an annual budget of $327,916. Our grant allows us to serve 175 participants annually.
We believe that students from all socioeconomic levels should have equal opportunity to obtain a post-secondary education.
Our mission is to assist low-income, first generation students to overcome the cultural, academic, class, and social barriers to success in higher education and to assure that participants graduate from the university. Learn more about the TRiO Program.
