TRiO

TRiO is an educational opportunity for economically disadvantaged and disabled Americans. In support of the commitment to providing educational opportunities for all Americans regardless of race, ethnic background or economic status, Congress established a series of programs to help economically disadvantaged Americans enter into postsecondary education activities. Students continue their education at community colleges, technical programs, four-year institutions and more.

TRiO programs are funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965. While student financial aid programs help students overcome financial barriers to higher education, TRiO programs help students overcome class, social and cultural barriers. Additional funding is earned through grants.

As mandated by Congress, two-thirds of the students served must come from families with incomes under $28,000, and where neither parent graduated from college. Nationwide, more than 2,700 TRiO programs currently serve nearly 866,000 low-income individuals. Programs are primarily targeted toward 6th through 12th grades.

There are two TRiO programs represented at the Coeur d'Alene Center: Educational Talent Search and Silver Valley Upward Bound. Check out a full list of the TRiO projects.
