Program Description

TRiO Talent Search at the University of North Texas began on September 1, 1985. Each year the activities, enthusiasm and participation grows while the focus has remained the same: assist students with recognizing and developing their potential so that they can enroll in the postsecondary institution that is best for their needs.

Its ongoing mission is to encourage students in grades 6th through 12th to graduate from a secondary program and enter a post-secondary program of study. Students are selected for participation based on their need for the program, family income and parental educational attainment. We also work with and provide services to students in need of obtaining a general education diploma.
