What is Talent Search?

Talent Search is an educational program for motivated students with academic potential who want to continue their education after high school.

The program is especially focused on serving students who will be the first in their family to attend a college or university in pursuit of a degree.

Because Talent Search is a federally funded TRiO program, there is NO cost to participants.


Participant Qualifications:

Students must be in grades seven through twelve and live in Lee, Scott, or Wise counties or the City of Norton. The program is particularly designed for students of families with low-income or students whose parents have not received a four-year degree.
