E-Brief: TRIO Programs in Michigan - Eligibility and Institutional Information

There are 8 TRIO programs aimed at making educational opportunities possible for all students regardless of their race, class, or gender.

Today, these programs offer support services to low-income and/or first generation college students in their quest for post secondary education. In 2008, the Higher Education Act makes homeless children and youth, or youth in foster care (including youth who have left foster care after reaching age 13), automatically eligible for TRIO programs.

This E-brief provides descriptions and eligibility criteria for all 8 TRIO programs in Michigan. Each program contains a list of participating or host institutions, as well as links to specific program websites.
