Educational Talent Search is a college access program sponsored by Portland State University, and funded through the U.S. Department of Education. Educational Talent Search serves 685 students from grades 6-12 in the Portland and Hillsboro School Districts. The program mission is to identify, motivate, and assist students in their educational transitions into college. We primarily work with students who come from low-income families and/or will be the first in their family to pursue post-secondary education. We encourage students to stay in school and graduate, and to enroll in a community college, a four-year university, or a vocational/technical college.
