What is TRIO?
Our nation has asserted a commitment to providing educational opportunity for all Americans regardless of race, ethnic background, or economic circumstance. In support of this commitment, Congress established a series of programs to help limited income, first generation and disadvantaged Americans enter college, graduate from college, and become positive contributors to society. These programs are referred to as TRIO Programs.
