Congratulations to the Jefferson College Project SUCCESS Student Support Services/TRIO program which has again been funded by the U.S. Department of Education for five years (2020-2025) in the full amount of $1,530,180.
The TRIO programs were created in the 1960s by the Lyndon Baines Johnson administration as part of the War on Poverty (higher education being a fine way to pull oneself out of the poverty cycle). Jefferson College was awarded its first SSS grant in 1997 and has been successfully renewed in each grant competition since.
