TRiO Student Group Celebrating Outside

Thank you for visiting the Office of TRiO Programs at Central Connecticut State University. Our federally-funded programs were created to motivate and support low-income and potential first-generation 6th-12th grade students in the Consolidated School District of New Britain. The TRiO programs, Educational Talent Search (ETS) and Upward Bound Math & Science (UBMS), provide students with academic assistance and support, college preparation and exposure, career development, and cultural enrichment. These programs ensure that students will expand their knowledge and grow personally through career exploration activities that will help them succeed beyond secondary school.
