TRIO Rising Scholars Program

OUR PROGRAM

TRIO Rising Scholars (TRS) is a federally funded TRIO Student Support Services grant program located in the heart of Boise State University’s campus in Boise, Idaho. We offer a multi-faceted support unit—offering academic assistance and encouragement for eligible students in both the humanities and business disciplines. Our goal is to help students earn their four-year degree and develop into scholars that are well prepared for their future careers and/or graduate programs.

Our Goal

We believe students from all socioeconomic backgrounds should have equal opportunity to earn a post-secondary education. We assist students in the transition from being a typical college student to a scholar who is well-connected, engaged, and heading down a path of success. The Boise State University TRIO Rising Scholars Program is designed to help students achieve their dream of graduating from college with an undergraduate degree in a humanities or business field.
