Educational Talent Search Program

The federally funded -TRIO program, Educational Talent Search (FETS)
encourages students in grades six through twelve. In addition to counseling,
participants receive information about college admissions requirements,
scholarships and various college financial assistance programs. The early
intervention component helps participants better understand their educational
opportunities and options. In addition to tutoring, participants receive
mentor experiences with college students.

Each year a minimum of 1100 promising youth are identified and enrolled
in FETS each year. The University sponsors a series of programs to help
low-income residents enter college and graduate. Over 1,200 colleges, universities,
community colleges and agencies now offer TRIO programs in America. TRIO
funds are distributed to institutions from the U.S. Department of Education
through competitive grants.
