TRIO Educational Talent Search

Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a TRiO program that identifies and assists individuals from underrepresented backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education. ETS at UTSA currently serves students at middle schools and high schools in Eagle Pass-Brackettville, San Antonio, and Uvalde-Crystal City.

The program provides academic, career, and financial counseling to support high school graduation and encourage postsecondary degree completion for participants, most of whom will be the first in their families to complete a bachelor’s degree.
