What is Educational Talent Search???

If you are asking yourself this question, you are not alone!!!

Simply put, Educational Talent Search is a program designed to encourage students to complete high school and continue their education at a college, technical or vocational institution.

The Talent Search program does not represent any specific institution.  Our primary purpose is to help students to continue their education.  We assist students in finding the opportunity that best fits their needs or career choices.

Here's a glance at Educational Talent Search on the national level.  TRIO Talent Search programs serve young people in grades six through twelve.  In addition to counseling, participants receive information about college admissions requirements, scholarships and various student financial aid programs.  This early intervention program helps young people to better understand their educational opportunities and options.  Over 320,854 Americans are enrolled in 360 Talent Search TRIO Programs.
