US Department of Education awards funding for Northwest program

The United States Department of Education has awarded Northwest Missouri State University's TRIO program funding to continue for the another five years. Northwest will receive $368,829 annually, totalling roughly $1.84 million during the entire period.

TRIO programs provide supportive services to students from poor and working families to successfully enter college and earn degrees. It is a federally recognized educational outreach program and serves as an umbrella organization for Northwest programs consisting of Upward Bound, Upward Bound Math and Science and Student Support Services.

The grant will allow Northwest's TRIO program to serve 80 students when the new grant cycle begins on September 1.

Northwest TRIO programs have assisted students in their journey to a degree since 1986.
