Trio Day

ETS is a federally funded program designed to identify and assist individuals who have the potential to succeed in higher education (community college, vocational/technical school, four-year-college/university, or proprietary school).

Serving over 810 students annually, ETS provides programs and activities specially designed for students who are traditionally underrepresented in postsecondary education. Priority is given to students from low-income families, students who would potentially be first-generation college students, students who are homeless children and youths, students who are in foster care or are aging out of the foster care system or other disconnected students. Per federal guidelines two-thirds of all ETS participants must meet low-income and first-generation (neither parent has a college degree) eligibility guidelines.

The Educational Talent Search Program at Hampton University serves nine schools in the Hampton City School District.
