Boise State University TRiO Pre-College Programs, Educational Talent Search and Upward Bound
TRIO is education opportunity for low-income students. In 1965, Congress established a number of programs to help low-income students enter college. These programs were created under Title IV of the Higher Educational Act of 1965.
TRIO began with Upward Bound, which was initiated out of the Economic Opportunity act of 1964 as a response to the administration "War on Poverty".
In 1965, Educational Talent Search was created and Student Support Service came in 1968. Over the years, more programs were added to reach more students who need assistance. Most recently added is the TRIO Dissemination Partnership, which was established in 1998.
Over 1000 colleges, universities, community colleges and other agencies now offer TRIO programs. The programs at Boise State University include Upward Bound, Educational Talent Search, TRIO Dissemination Partnership, Student Success Service, College Assistance Migrant Program, High School Equivalency Program and Multicultural Educational Opportunity.
