WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) – member of the Senate Appropriations Committee – today announced four U.S. Department of Education grants totaling $1,718,945 for higher education institutions in Kansas. The grants will support the Federal TRIO Talent Search Program over the next five years to identify and assist students from disadvantaged backgrounds with the potential to succeed in higher education, often as first-generation college students.
“As a first-generation college student, I recognize the challenges and uncertainties many students face when considering pursuing a college education,” said Sen. Moran. “TRIO programs are a proven and effective tool for helping disadvantaged students earn a college degree, and as a member of the Senate Appropriations subcommittee with jurisdiction over TRIO, I will continue to support programs that help our next generation of Kansans.”
