The Educational Talent Search (ETS) Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Education, has hundreds of programs throughout the nation; eleven of which are located in Kentucky. Eastern Kentucky University has been a host institution for Talent Search for over 30 years, and currently serves the following Kentucky counties: Estill, Garrard, Jackson, Lee, and Madison.
The Talent Search program identifies and assists individuals who have the potential to succeed in higher education (community college, vocational/technical school, four-year college or university, or proprietary school).
ETS provides tutorial services, career exploration, aptitude assessments, counseling, mentoring programs, workshops, information on postsecondary institutions; education or counseling services designed to improve the financial and economic literacy of students; guidance on and assistance in secondary school reentry, and workshops for families of participants. The programs and activities are specially designed for students who are traditionally underrepresented in postsecondary education, students from low-income families, students who would potentially be first-generation college students, students with disabilities, students who are homeless children and youths, students who are in foster care or are aging out of the foster care system or other disconnected students.
