What is TRiO?
TRiO is an Educational Opportunity for Low-Income and Disabled Americans. Under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, Congress established the Trio programs to help students overcome class, social and cultural barriers to higher education.
TRiO programs focus on early intervention to help each student understand and recognize their career options.
TRiO programs are available to low-income, physically disabled, and first-generation students. Today the TRiO programs are offered in over 1,000 university, colleges, community colleges and agencies that serve more than 866,000 Americans.
