Program Description

TRIO Talent Search at the University of North Texas began on September 1, 1985. For the past 31 years, the activities, enthusiasm, and participation grow while the program's focus remains the same: assist students with recognizing and developing their potential so that they can enroll and complete the postsecondary institution that is best for their needs.

Our goal is to increase the number of college graduates in the Cooke and Denton counties by assisting students with academic enrichment, college enrollment, and the financial aid process. Talent Search is one of six federally funded TRIO Programs housed under the Division of Student Affairs at the University of North Texas.
