The Educational Talent Search Program is funded through the U.S. Department of Education, sponsored by the College with projects located on both campuses. The program is designed to assist eligible participants to enter, continue in and graduate from high school and to enroll in and complete a program of post-secondary education or training. The program works with students in grades 6 through 12 (ages 11 through 27) as well as dropouts and stop-outs in Colbert, Franklin, Lauderdale, Lawrence, and Winston Counties in Alabama and Lawrence and Wayne Counties in Tennessee. In this program, trained counselors/advisors seek out qualified individuals who need help. Through counseling and advising, they motivate participants to continue their education. Program participants receive academic advising, assistance in course selection, preparation for college entrance exams, assistance with college and student financial aid applications, connections to services to improve financial literacy, personal and career counseling and connections to high quality academic tutoring.
