The School of Engineering's TRIO Scholars Program is funded by a Student Support Services TRIO Grant from the United States Department of Education. The TRIO Scholars Program provides a wide range of support services to eligible students. We offer services designed to maximize TRIO participants’ academic and personal potential, providing them with the support and skills needed to remain in college and complete a degree program.
TRIO is a series of federal programs designed to create educational opportunity for disadvantaged students. TRIO’s programs motivate and support qualified students who are either low-income, first generation college, or have a documented disability so that they can succeed in the completion of their post secondary education.
