The "TRIO" programs began in 1965 with passage of the Higher Education Act and originally included Educational Talent Search (for middle school students), Upward Bound (for high school students), and Student Support Services (for college students). These programs provide academic, financial, and other assistance to help "disadvantaged" students complete high school and enroll in and/or complete college. "Disadvantaged" students include: first generation students (student's whose parent(s) did not graduate from college) low-income students students with disabilities. The U.S. Department of Education has expanded the "TRIO" programs to include Math & Science Upward Bound, Veterans, Upward Bound, the Ronald E. McNair Postgraduate program, and Educational Opportunity Centers. The Student Support Services program at PHCC is funded to serve 213 students each year with a grant of $301,416 per year.
