Federal TRIO Programs
There are eight federal TRIO programs that provide college and career readiness services and intensive interventions for pre-college and college students. The Office of Externally Sponsored Programs currently runs three pre-college programs: Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math & Science and Educational Talent Search. Berea College’s Office of Academic Services also runs the Student Support Services program, which serves a subset of students enrolled at Berea College.
The goal of this program is to increase the rate at which participants graduate high school and enroll in and graduate from colleges and universities. The program serves 9th-12th graders in high schools in four Kentucky counties. Upward Bound serves 90 students per year.
