New Award Applications on Training Program for Federal TRIO

The Department of Education issued a notice inviting applications for new awards for fiscal year (FY) 2022 for the Training Program for Federal TRIO Programs. The Training Program provides grants to train the staff and leadership personnel employed in, participating in, or preparing for employment in, projects funded under the Federal TRIO Programs, to improve project operation. The Administration received $1.13 billion for new awards for the Federal TRIO Programs for FY 2022, of which the Department of Education intends to use an estimated $3.2 million for the TRIO Training Program.

The Ronald E. McNair Postbaccalaureate Achievement Program is one of eight TRIO programs at the Department of Education. Through a grant competition, funds are awarded to institutions of higher education to prepare eligible participants for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities. The goal is to increase the attainment of Ph.D. degrees by students from underrepresented segments of society.
