|TRiO is a federally funded grant program that helps traditionally underrepresented students graduate from Cloud and transfer to a 4 year institution.|
- Are you a first generation student? (neither parent has a 4 year degree)
- Did you qualify for a pell grant?
- Have you been out of school for over 5 years?
- Do you have a SNAP file with the college?
- Were you in foster care?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you may qualify to be part of TRiO! As a member of TRiO, you are eligible for Academic Assistance, both on and off campus referrals, Transfer coaching, and Personal, Career and Financial Aid counseling. TRiO staff also provides Financial Literacy training, support groups and monthly cultural activities. As sophomores, TRiO members will be taken on campus visits to various universities and have the ability to speak with professors in their degree area. We help with the transfer process and try to make continuing in education as seamless as possible by assisting with applications and scholarship essays.
You can apply online or visit the TRiO office on your campus. (On the Concordia campus, the TRiO office is located in the green pod, room 209. On the Geary County campus, the TRiO office is located in the kitchen in building B.)
