About TRiO Talent Search

Colorado State University-Pueblo was awarded a five-year, 1.2 million dollar grant from the U.S. Department of Education to fund Talent Search as part of its TRiO programs. Talent Search will help 500 middle and high school students annually at Pueblo City Schools with career exploration and secondary school success initiatives as well as transitions. The program is one of just five in the state. The program identifies and assists individuals who have the potential and desire to succeed in higher education. The program provides academic, career, and financial counseling to its participants and encourages them to graduate from high school and continue on to complete their postsecondary education.
