We are excited about our outreach and retention initiatives here at OSU. The Department
of TRIO and Sponsored Research Programs looks forward to helping all program participants
reach their educational goals.
Message from the Associate Vice President
We proudly host several outreach and comprehensive support services program to assist
first-generation, low-income, or otherwise underrepresented students in higher education,
including students with disabilities.
Orange Strides: A TRIO Talent Search Project (formerly Talent Search) is a college
and career preparatory program designed to provide academic skills and motivation
for students who are interested in pursuing an educational program beyond high school.
The OK-LSAMP initiative supports historically underrepresented students in STEM. This
program is limited to a select and highly committed group of students with a declared
major in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and the pre-health professions.
OSU medical student Emily Sowah was one of only 15 medical students from across the country selected for the 2023 ElevateMeD Scholarship Program, which aims to develop talented medical students from underrepresented backgrounds into the next generation of physician leaders.
