Canisius received a $352,266 grant through the U.S. Department of Education’s Talent Search Program. The grant provides funding for the college’s Academic Talent Search Program, designed to identify students in underserved communities with the potential for success in post-secondary education.
The Department of Education’s Talent Search Program identifies and assists underrepresented students encouraging them to graduate from high school and complete a college degree. It also reaches students who have not completed secondary and post-secondary programs, encouraging them to reenter and finish their college degrees.
“This grant enables us to continue to work with schools in under-served neighborhoods and provide academic, career and financial counseling to the more than 600 participants in the program,” said Canisius President John J. Hurley. “Through the Academic Talent Search Program we provide students with the tools to accomplish their educational goals.”
