| Upward Bound | Math/Sci | TRiO Scholars Program

Program Overview

TRiO Programs are funded under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965 and are administered by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Federal TRiO Programs. The Programs are educational opportunity outreach and support programs designed to motivate students from disadvantage backgrounds to seek educational excellence and to help them make the transition from middle school to secondary school and on to postsecondary education and baccalaureate programs. The history of TRiO is progressive. Over the years, the original three programs (Talent Search, Upward Bound and Student Support Services) have been expanded to eight - the name remains TRiO.

Howard University has had a TRiO Program on its campus since 1965 when the University was funded to administer one of the pilot Upward Bound Programs. In 1977, the University received funding for a Student Support Services Program and subsequently funding for a Math/Science Program and a Ronald E. McNair Post-baccalaureate Program in 1991 and 1994 respectively.

Three of the TRiO Programs are currently within the Howard University’s School of Education:
