Oregon TRIO Association’s mission is to be a catalyst in Oregon for progressive initiatives that promote educational equity, access, and opportunity for traditionally marginalized student populations.
OTA advocates for its TRIO programs and students at the Congressional level, provides professional development opportunities for members and students, connects students to community resources, and offers grant writing support to ensure the sustainability of its programs by the US Department of Education.
OTA is working to build organizational capacity as it can now provide advanced support to its programs and create new opportunities for TRIO students.
OTA’s primary goal is to increase the number of students served in Oregon by applying for new TRIO grants throughout the state.
These grant funds are utilized to create scholarships to support college students who are no longer eligible for financial aid (and are close to graduation) and for low-income students to pursue international education opportunities.
The Oregon TRIO Association website is currently under construction.
Essential content and forms are still accessible through the menu.
Thank you for your patience!
