Our Legacy & Funding
TRIO Programs are funded through the U.S. Department of Education under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965. The collective mission is to help participants successfully enter, attend and graduate from college.
The University of Kansas is one of more than 1,200 colleges, universities, community colleges and agencies that offer TRIO programs in the United States.
We have served youth and their families in Kansas City, KS since 1988. Thousands of middle and high school students have benefitted from TRIO and have gone on to pursue college and attain a college degree.
