TRIO Student Support Services received $1.7 million from the Department of Education to continue its service and support of first-generation, low-income, and underrepresented students at Purdue University Northwest.

The focus of the Trio Student Support Services grant is to retain and graduate students in their academic programs. Students in the program have access to one-on-one academic coaching, financial literacy education, skills building (i.e. time management, organization), and tutoring.

Student Support Services is one of five federally funded TRIO programs on campus. The others include the McNair Achievement Program, Educational Talent Search (Hammond), Educational Talent Search (Westville) and Upward Bound.
