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
program. We strive to provide students with tools and support to succeed and excel
at UC Riverside and beyond.
The TRIO Scholars Program provides academic assistance from entry into the program,
all the way through graduation. Academic support and 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.
