Thank you for your interest in the TRiO Scholars Program!

Our program application is one that remains open throughout the year. That said, we review most of our applications twice a year. For fall consideration, we begin reviewing applications in early spring (early March through late April). For spring consideration, we begin reviewing applications in the winter (mid December through January). Please note that we review a limited amount of applications for spring, as most of our intake happens in the fall.

Please take your time and answer all the questions on our application to the best of your knowledge. Should you need additional time to complete our application, you do have the ability to save your progress and finish the application later. Our application process is a two-step process:
  1. You will complete the current application below.
  2. Qualified applicants will be sent another link where additional materials will be required.
We process our applications twice a year - before fall and spring semesters. If your application is not considered for your desired semester, we will keep it on file and will consider you for our waitlist.

If you have any questions, please call our office at (775) 784-6044.
