TRIO Programs

The TCU TRIO Programs, funded through the U.S. Department of Education and Texas Christian University, have been a vital part of the TCU campus and Fort Worth community for many years. TCU’s programs are comprised of three separate programs that all serve to foster the academic growth and progression of students from high school to entry into PhD Programs. The Student Support Services program provides academic support to 160 eligible TCU undergraduates. The Ronald E. McNair program provides 28 TCU undergraduates, classified at the junior and senior level the opportunity to pursue research and prepare for entry into post-baccalaureate programs leading to the attainment of a PhD.
