About Our Programs

TRIO Pre-College Programs, TRIO Talent Search & TRIO Upward Bound, are community based programs focused on helping to empower potential first-generation students and/or students from income-eligible homes to be successful in middle and high school and prepare for college. Your future is our mission. We are hosted by Michigan Technological University and 100% grant funded by the US Department of Education.

While both our programs have unique offerings, they operate with the similar mission of assisting students and their families from Baraga, Gogebic, Houghton, Iron, Keweenaw, and Ontonagon counties.
