TRIO Talent Search
What is Educational Talent Search?
Three Rivers College's Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a TRiO program that provides education outreach and is funded through the U.S. Department of Education. Educational Talent Search is designed to motivate and support students in grades 6-12 who have the potential to succeed in college.

The Educational Talent Search program:
  • Provides academic, career, and financial aid counseling to its participants.
  • Encourages them to graduate from high school.
  • Encourages them to continue on to the postsecondary school of their choice.
Three Rivers' ETS has many activities for participants throughout the school year, including monthly in-school workshops, college campus tours, and cultural enrichment trips. As students advance toward high school graduation, the focus is centered on preparing them to apply, enroll, and become successful in their postsecondary careers. Services provided by the program include goal setting, character building activities, and many more.
