As mandated by Congress, two-thirds of the students served must
come from families with incomes meeting the current Federal TRIO
Programs Annual Low Income Levels, where neither parent
graduated from college. More than 2,700 TRIO Programs currently
serve nearly 866,000 low-income Americans. Many programs serve
students in grades six through 12. Thirty-seven percent of TRIO
students are Whites, 35% are African-Americans, 19% are Hispanics,
4% are Native Americans, 4% are Asian-Americans, and 1% are listed
as "Other," including multiracial students. Twenty-two
thousand students with disabilities and more than 25,000 U.S.
veterans are currently enrolled in the TRIO Programs as well.
