Program description

Educational Talent Search (ETS)

Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a college preparatory program federally funded through the U. S. Department of Education TRIO Programs with Century College sponsorship. The ETS program encourages students to complete high school, assists them in enrolling in a post-secondary educational institution and completing their education.

Participants and parents receive information on academic, career and college planning, including financial aid resources and applications. Program staff provide grade-level specific workshops and campus visits, and encourage participants to remain focused on their personal academic/career goals.

ETS is free for participants, and aims at increasing the number of low-income, first-generation students in post-secondary programs.
