U.S. Department of Education grants Tarleton $1.18 million

🕐 1 min read

Tarleton State University has received a $1.18 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education to help fund the university’s program that helps students dealing with educational challenges.

The program, called Talent Search, is a federal initiative hosted at Tarleton that helps junior and high school students with low-income backgrounds, disabilities, limited English language proficiency and other challenges. The program is similar to Upward Bound, another federal educational initiative hosted at Tarleton.

“This is a win-win for Tarleton and the many students who’ll greatly benefit from the college preparatory services provided by Talent Search,” said Jenny Watts, director of the university’s Upward Bound program. “Similar to Upward Bound, Talent Search provides opportunities for participants to succeed in precollege performance and ultimately in their pursuit of a higher education.”

Among the schools participating in Tarleton’s Talent Search program are Henderson Junior High in Stephenville, Stephenville High School, Brownwood High School and others.

Tarleton will receive the first part of the grant on Sept. 1 and will continue receiving funding until 2021.
