Welcome to the home of TN TRIO online. Here you will find everything you need to stay informed about all of our programs, including information, opportunities, & resources. 


TN TRIO is a non-profit educational organization dedicated to help disadvantaged students persevere and matriculate. Our students typically come from lower-income households and are first generation (neither parent has earned a bachelors degree). We are committed to ensuring our students achieve their academic goals,  and become successful contributing members of their communities.   


TN TRIO members are employed through the federally funded TRIO programs: Educational Opportunity Centers, Talent Search, Ronald E. McNair Scholars Program, Student Support Services, Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math & Science, Veteran's Upward Bound, or other educational opportunity programs like GEAR-UP. 


The purpose of the TN TRIO, is to bring together individuals who have an active interest in or who are professionally involved in broadening accessibility to and success in formal post-secondary education.
