General Information
The TRIO programs are funded under the Higher Education Act of 1965 and currently include seven different programs targeting educational levels from 6th grade through a postbaccalaureate degree.

The federal TRIO programs were established by Congress to help low-income and first-generation students prepare and succeed in programs of postsecondary education.

Student Support Services (SSS) assists participants to successfully complete an undergraduate program of study through academic advisement, counseling, and information on financial aid.

Talent Search (TS) helps youth to complete secondary education and encourages entry and re-entry into programs of postsecondary education.

Upward Bound (UB) is an academically intensive program designed to help students gain the skills and motivation necessary to complete secondary and pursue postsecondary education.

Upward Bound Math/Science (UBMS) is similar to Upward Bound, but focuses on careers and supplementary education in the mathematics and scientific fields.

Veterans Upward Bound (VUB) is designed to help Veterans enter or reenter secondary and postsecondary education through advising, financial aid information and counseling.

Educational Opportunity Centers (EOC) counsel, assist and provide information regarding financial aid and admissions to adults who wish to pursue further education.

Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program (McNair) prepares participants for doctoral study through involvement in research, internships, and other scholarly activities.
