Our Mission - The mission of the KU Talent Search/TRIO Program is to empower our participants to reach their college and career dreams.
"Education is the key to opportunity in our society, and the equality of educational opportunity must be the birthright of every citizen." - Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th President of the United States, helped found TRIO Programs in 1964
Since 1988, KU TRIO Talent Search has made a difference in the lives of more than 20,000 students and their families in Kansas City, Kansas. With the help of programs like KU Talent Search, college is a reality, not just a dream.
