If you're a middle- or high-school student who lacks financial support or family members
with university experience, it's easy to think college is out of reach. The free guidance,
support and resources of TRIO can help you make your college dreams real.
There are unique challenges in being the first in your family to pursue a college
degree. As a middle school or high school student, you can start smoothing your path
to college years before you get there.
Programs for Middle- and High-Schoolers
TRIO has two free programs that help prospective low-income and/or first-generation
students in Richland County get a head start on planning for college.
