Council for Opportunity in Education, Washington, DC.
The institutions and agencies in this directory sponsor federally funded TRIO programs that enable students from low-income families to enter college and graduate. The TRIO programs (originally only a "trio" of programs) include Talent Search, Student Support Services, Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math and Science, Veterans Upward Bound, Educational Opportunity Centers, and the Ronald E. McNair Post-Baccalaureate Achievement Program. Students in the TRIO programs mirror the multicultural and multiethnic U.S. society. Thirty-nine percent of TRIO students are White, 36% are African American, 16% are Hispanic, 5% are Native American, and 4% are Asian American. Sixteen thousand TRIO students are disabled, and more than 25,000 U.S. veterans are currently enrolled in TRIO programs. This directory lists all institutions and agencies that sponsor federally funded TRIO programs. For easy access, institutions and agencies are listed by state and by program. (SLD)
