Education Department Announces TRIO Workshops
The U.S. Department of Education, Office of Federal TRIO Programs, announced last week the schedule and locations for 10 pre-application workshops for the TRIO Talent Search and TRIO Educational Opportunity Centers Program.
The workshops will run from July 11th - August 16th in various cities. Please visit http://www.triogrants.com/ for the agenda, workshop dates and location, and registration forms. TRIO staff will be in each of the ten locations for two days: on day one they will conduct a pre-application workshop for the TRIO Talent Search Program; on day two they will conduct a pre-application workshop for the TRIO Educational Opportunity Centers Program.
The purpose of the Talent Search Program is to identify and assist individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education through academic, career, and financial counseling. The Education Opportunity Centers program provides counseling and information on college admissions to qualified adults who want to enter or continue a program of postsecondary education.
HACU encourages its membership to take advantage of this opportunity to qualify for a TRIO Program.
