Educational Talent Search
Educational Talent Search (ETS) is a TRIO program that helps middle school and high school students prepare for and enter post-secondary education. Talent Search provides career exploration and planning, workshops and individual counseling sessions for financial aid, scholarship information, ACT preparation, and college exploration. The program also arranges college campus visits, educational and cultural trips. Talent Search works with the 7th - 12th grades in Hawkins, Johnson and Sullivan counties.
How do I Apply?
Anyone interested in receiving services from the ETSU Talent Search program must attend a school served by the program (see a list on the services page).
