Talent Search


Talent Search Logo

The Talent Search program identifies and assists individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds who have the potential to succeed in higher education.

Talent Search also encourages persons who have not completed education programs at the secondary or post secondary level to enter or reenter and complete post-secondary education. The goal of Talent Search is to increase the number of youth from disadvantaged backgrounds who complete high school and enroll in and complete their post secondary education.
