(Higher Education Act, Title IV-A) $266.6 M

“TRIO” encompasses a group of programs designed to increase college awareness, preparation, retention, and graduation rates for underserved students, primarily through counseling, tutoring, and study skill instruction. In FY 2002, two-year institutions received $266.6 million of the $760 million available under programs for which they are eligible. Program funding included Talent Search ($143.5 M total, $48.77 M to community colleges), Upward Bound ($264.2 M, $73.3 M to community colleges), Upward Bound Math and Science ($31.8 M, $4.35 M to community colleges), and Educational Opportunity Centers ($48 M, $14.2 M to community colleges). These programs primarily target students before college-aged and are often based at higher education institutions. The Student Support Services program provides guidance and activities for low-income, first generation college students ($262.7 M, $125.8 M to community colleges). In addition, nearly $200,000 went to one community college for dissemination activities—one of 17 awards in that area. TRIO programs do not hold new competitions in all categories during the same year. In FY 2002, two-year institutions submitted 403 of the 1202 new applications for the Educational Opportunity Centers and Talent Search competitions, and received 229 of the 614 new awards. In the competition for training, two-year institutions submitted four of 68 applications, and received none of the 29 awards. (http://www.ed.gov/about/offices/list/ope/trio/index.html)
