TRIO - Talent Search

Helping students navigate the path towards high school graduation & college enrollment

Iowa Lakes Community College TRIO Talent Search Program is a free college access program sponsored by Iowa Lakes Community College.

We provide support and guidance to students to ensure success in high school as well as post-secondary education enrollment and graduation.

Talent Search is a federally funded TRIO program through the Department of Education. Funding for the 2023-2024 academic year is $404,040 to serve 700 eligible students in grades 6-12.

The purpose of the program is to help low-income and potential first generation college students in middle and high school to reach their educational goals and to pursue post-secondary enrollment and graduation.

Our focus is to encourage and assist students to reach their academic and personal goals in school and enroll in a post secondary school after graduation.
