A renewal of a five-year federal grant of more than $550,000 for the University of New Hampshire will continue to provide support to more than 1,160 low-income and first-generation students in middle and high schools who want to go to college.

The program provides a range of services for students in grades six through 12 including study skills, financial literacy, test preparation, career counseling, and assistance in applying for financial aid.

Educational Talent Search is one of the federal programs that also include Upward Bound, Student Support Services and the Ronald E. McNair program. It encourages low-income and first-generation students to be successful in school and to continue on to higher education.
