Educational Talent Search is a federally funded TRIO program via the U.S. Department of Education, which assists in providing mainstream educational opportunities to persons from income eligible backgrounds and/or potential first generation students to complete secondary education and subsequently enroll in postsecondary institutions. Our efforts are coordinated with teachers, school counselors, parents, various community agencies and existing support system peers.
The mission of the Purdue University Calumet Educational Talent Search Program is “to enable targeted individuals an opportunity to enhance their overall quality of life by providing comprehensive intervention academic and career-related services.”
