TRIO grant will support student success
TRIO will be able to continue its great work with our students!
SFCC received a new $275,105 TRIO Student Support Services (SSS) grant from the U.S. Department of Education aimed at helping increase the number of low-income college students, first-generation students and those with disabilities to complete an SFCC two-year degree and transfer to a four-year college or university. The award amount is for the first year but is expected to be renewed each year for five years.
SFCC’s Interim Director of TRIO Danielle Gonzales said, “We are encouraging students to apply in upcoming semesters. Students can apply online at https://www.sfcc.edu/offices/trio/. Once the application is complete, one of our staff members will be in touch with the student to schedule an interview.”
Gonzales added, “It can be difficult to acclimate to the college experience, but SFCC’s TRIO students have a chance to thrive through the personal interaction that our services afford. We have a dedicated and resilient staff who work diligently to continue to serve our students during the pandemic.”
