TRiO is a group of programs offered through MSU and collaborative efforts with state and federal educational agencies. The goal of TRiO programs is to help students in need gain access to educational tools, prepare students for postsecondary education, promote community service and good citizenship.
Organizations that Support External & TRiO Programs
All external and TRiO programs are externally grant-funded programs. The TRiO programs are funded through the US Department of Education and have been operating at MSU for nearly 40 years. There are approximately 21,000 students served by TRiO programs in Kentucky.
Other programs are funded through different community, state or federal grant programs.
