Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a federally funded TRiO program serving students aged 11-27, focusing on those whose families are on a limited income and whose parents did not graduate with a four year college degree. The program targets "educationally talented" students, any who have the desire and the potential to seek post high school education, which includes two and four year colleges and technical schools. ETS helps students better understand their educational opportunities and options. Therefore, all students are encouraged to apply.
