What is Trio?

Our nation has asserted a commitment to providing educational opportunity for all Americans, regardless of race, ethnic background, or economic circumstance.  In support of this commitment, Congress established a series of programs to help low-income Americans enter college, graduate, and move on to participate more fully in America's economic and social life. 

TRIO programs help students overcome economic, class, social, and cultural barriers to  higher education. The history of TRIO is progressive and started with three programs: Upward Bound in 1964, Talent Search in 1965, and Student Support Services in 1968. Educational Opportunity Centers were added in 1972.  Later additions include the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate and Upward Bound: Science and Math programs.
