TRIO Scholars – Our Mission

TRIO Scholars Program!

Our Mission Statement

UC Riverside has a rich history of opening the door of opportunity and access to higher education for eligible students across the country regardless of race, ethnicity or culture. The current UC Riverside TRIO Scholars Program was funded in September 2015 with an award to UCR of approximately $220,000 per year through 2019-2020.

We promote the academic, social, personal and professional success of all our students by building a strong sense of community and drawing on resources both within and outside of the program. We strive to provide students with tools and support to succeed and excel at UC Riverside and beyond.


Connecting Students

The TRIO Scholars Program provides academic assistance to students from time of their acceptance to the program graduation. Academic support, individual tutoring, financial advising, and career and graduate school counseling are some of the many services TRIO Scholars will receive once admitted to the program. This valuable service costs nothing, but provides scholar participants with the tools they will need to be successful at UC Riverside and beyond.
